Daisy Cross Bookmark

Name: daisy cross bookmark
Pattern: from
Materials: Cotton tatting/crochet thread, size 70
Method: Shuttle; rings
Time: 3 ½ hours

I found a picture of this bookmark and made up a pattern to match it, but after I finished the bookmark, I realized that Elaine made the pattern available on her website. Here is the bookmark as seen on Elaine's blog, and here is the pattern for the bookmark.

I absolutely love this pattern! It is incredibly simple; it uses only rings and can be made with only one shuttle. Once finished, the bookmark is very sturdy because the rings are all very close together and solidly joined. It will hold up very well in use. The daisy motives would also be great in many other tatted projects, like bracelets, headbands, or handkerchief edging. I foresee that it will be one of my standards.

Nom: marguerite croix signet
Modèle: de
Matériels: fil de coton, tailles 70
Méthode: navette; anneaux
Temps: 3 ½ heures

J’ai trouvé une photo de ce signet et j’ai fait mon propre modèle pour l’adapter. Mais ensuite, j’ai réalisé que Elaine le mettre sur son blog. Voici une photo sur le blog d’Elaine, et voici le modèlepour le signet.

J’adore absolument ce modèle ! Il est incroyablement simple ; il utilise seulement anneaux et on peut utiliser seulement une navette. Après il est finis, le signet est très robuste car les anneaux sont très serré et solidaire. Il va être très utile et durable. Les motives de marguerites seraient bien pour beaucoup d’autre projet de frivolité, comme les bracelets, bandeaux de têtes, ou bordures de mouchoirs. Je pense que je vais utiliser ce modèle très fréquemment.

Nombre: margarita cruz marcador
Patrón: de
Materiales: hilo de algodon, talla 70
Método: naveta; anillos
Tiempo: 3 ½ horas

He encontrado una foto de este marcador, y formado un patrón para que coincida, pero después de terminar el marcador, descubrí que Elaine se puso el patrón en su página web. Aquí está el marcador como se ve en el blog de ​​Elaine, y aquí está el patrón para el marcador.

¡Me encanta este modelo! Es muy simple; sólo utiliza los anillos y se puede hacer con una sola lanzadera. El marcador es muy fuerte debido a que los anillos están muy cerca y sólida. Se mantiene muy bien en uso. Los motivos de margaritas también serían bueno en muchos otros proyectos de frivolité, como las pulseras, diademas, o bordes de pañuelo. Preveo que será una de mis patrones normas.


  1. A very pretty cross bookmark, it looks so fresh and a reminder of Summer.
    Thanks for visiting my blog and pointing to yours which I am enjoying reading.

  2. Lovely cross and what a great idea putting down the thread, pattern etc at the beginning. I really MUST train my brain to do the same. You've set me a great example.

    1. Thank you, Jane! I've used one of your patterns before, and it's posted on this blog:

      I'm flattered that you like how I record the details of each piece of tatting!

  3. Pretty combination of the green and yellow colors. It really brings out the design of the cross, great job!

    1. I'm glad you like it! I think I chose the colors because they were already wound on bobbins, and I don't have many bobbins to spare yet...

  4. Just a lovely floral cross. And wow, there should be a lot of ends to finish off!

    1. Yes, it had a lot of ends. I'm brainstorming ways to make this daisy motif with fewer ends; I could try doing split rings on some of the petals to have a continuous thread, but there would still be separate pieces at the centers.

  5. Thank you to everyone for the thoughtful comments!
