Cross Bookmark

Posted on August 28, 2010

Here are two thread crosses I crocheted with #10 thread. I used a “C” crochet hook (2.75 mm) for both. The first one I used a single strand of #10 thread and the larger one was crocheted using double strands of thread. The small one is 6″ long and the larger one is 7″. The pattern calls for a #7 steel crochet but it was too small for me as I tried to work the pattern. But now that I know how to work the pattern, I want to try it again with the steel hook.

The pattern indicates that you can use it to make a cross bookmark or ornament so I may just not add the tassel and use these for ornaments. Here is the free crochet pattern link for the cross bookmark.

This was my first real experience using thread to crochet. I got two small balls at the thrift store for 49 cents so I wanted to give it a try. I love the pretty and delicate look of thread but it’s a far cry from crocheting with recycled plastic bags like I usually do. I do love my thread crosses and hope to make more for Christmas gifts now that I’ve learned to crochet with the very thin yarn.

    Pretty! I worked that pattern a while back. As I remember, the instructions were tricky working into the intersections of the arms on the first go-round. You did a nice job of interpreting.
