Lynn Miller is back with us here with her first edition of Kids Craft Corner.
Guess what? It's not just for kids!
This simple bookmark is great for a first crochet project. It is quick and easy. This is a bookmark that you can use for yourself, make for friends, or give to a favorite teacher. You will need a small amount of yarn so look around for a partial skein or small ball. Choose a yarn that is ‘worsted weight’ and a size ‘H’ crochet hook.
Chain 8, turn and make a single crochet in the first chain from the hook. Single crochet across, chain one, turn and continue working single crochets in those 7 stitches, back and forth until your book mark measures the size of a book or about 9 inches.

You can cut your yarn about 3 inches from your end and then weave the end into the back of your bookmark by using either a needle or your crochet hook.
