Crochet Granny Bookmark - Our Happy CAL Place, weekly and monthly CAL group on Ravelry.

Hello lovely people, last week I joined a CAL group over on Ravelry.  The group is called Our Happy CAL Place and if you like a good crochet along, I recommend you head on over to Ravelry and check them out.  The group has many different crochet alongs throughout the year, in particular a monthly and weekly crochet along.  The group is very friendly and helpful with a wide variety of projects and themes each week / month.  Joining a group like this is a great way to use up some stash and this bookmark would make a great gift for a book lover...



This weeks CAL was this cute Granny Bookmark, which is a free Ravelry download by Deborah Ellis.  The pattern calls for no.10 thread and a 1.5 mm hook.  I love the way thread projects look, but for myself, I am not keen working with such a tiny hook.  So, not having any thread weight yarn in my stash. I went for this cotton fingering yarn by Drops.  I used a 2.5mm hook to make my version of the bookmark and also skipped rounds 2 & 3 (otherwise it would have been far too big).


I'm really happy with the way it turned out and the pattern was very easy to follow.  Why not head over to the Ravelry group and take a look at the other members projects.  They are all so different, it's lovely to see everyone's take on this pretty pattern.


I hope you enjoyed this post and would love to see you in Our Happy CAL Place.  Be sure to follow (in the sidebar) and subscribe, for more posts like this...

Take care

  1. What a good idea! I think I will use very fine cotton so it isn't too thick in a book!
