Doilies and bookmarks


A few weeks ago I ordered some crochet thread and a book called Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts Lacy Crochet.  I really enjoy looking through it and want to make everything in it!  The doily above is from the book and the pattern is the Round Doily by Mayumi Kawai.  I used Artiste size 10 thread and a 1.5 mm hook.


This is the book along with the crochet thread I ordered.  I needed all of it lol.

Working on a tissue box cover/place mat from the book, pattern is by Sachiyo Fukao.

I finished the cross bookmarks this week, 100 all together!


Got a few more squares finished for this doily.  It will be a bigger version of the doily on the right.

Here is an orchid flower bookmark.  The pattern is the Crochet Orchid by MaryJ Handmade.

    1. Thank you so much! It's a twisted cord tassel. The page I learned it from is no longer available. I make mine a little bit different, the knot is hidden by the tassel. There are some bookmark patterns I'm going to write down soon and will include how I make the tassel.
