Bookmarks are a fun way to use up those odds and ends that you don't know what to do with. They are also a nice instant gratification project! This butterfly will hold your place nicely. It's extra cute with google eyes too. You can make a whole family of butterflies.

Total Time: About 15-20 minutes

Supplies:

  • "h" crochet hook
  • tiny amounts worsted weight yarn
  • scissors
  • embroidery needle for weaving in ends

Steps:

  1. Ch 7, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch until end. Work 2 sc in end ch.
  2. Rotate your work all the way around so that you can work on the other side of the ch. Work 5 sc on the opposite side.
  3. You will be joining in the first sc here, see?
  4. Slip stitch in the next stitch, ch 8.
  5. Slip stitch in the same space that you just chained in.
