OK, I've shown you lots of patterns for bigger things. Let's look at the opposite end of the crochet spectrum. This one is a corner bookmark, done in bedspread cotton with a steel hook. Folks, this is a different animal altogether. Cotton does not slip off your hook the way yarn does, and it doesn't "give" either. That makes it more challenging to crochet with.
Try a little bookmark like this, and you will have WAY more appreciation for those huge crocheted tablecloths (which I LOVE) than you did before.
You can find the corner bookmark pattern here.
And I've got a steel hook you can borrow.
If you decide you like it, how 'bout crocheting me this little number, the pattern for which can be found here. I've had a little mercy on you, because this cloth is actually done in one piece, instead of being thousands of tiny motifs that then have to be crocheted or sewn together! Aren't I NICE?
You can find the pattern for the tablecloth here.
Both of these patterns come from The Yarn Lover's Room, which is a wonderful site with lots of great patterns. Check it out!
Happy Tuesday, ya'll! And get to crocheting!
