Something Blue Bookmark

Cross Stitch Bookmark Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This bookmark is made with a combination of cross stitch and crochet and would be great made with any color combination.

 Cross Stitch Chart

Materials Needed
1 hank each of DMC#800 Delft Lt and #791 Cornflower Blue embroidery floss
14 count aida cloth 13x92 bars
Size 11 Steel crochet hook
Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends

Gauge 12sc=1"
Finished Size: 1¼"x6¼"
Skill Level: Intermediate

Instructions Be sure to cut the aida cloth so you have 13 by 92 bars. Not holes. To get the thread ready for crocheting with, separate the floss so you have 3-2ply strands of each color. What I do is take the paper off of the hanks, unwind the floss completely then pull one strand with my left hand while hanging on the long end with my right hand and I keep pulling that one strand out until it is all out with my left hand. I repeat this with all strands. Then I put two strands together and wind them around little pieces of cardboard. Do not cut the strands of floss for cross stitching until you are done crocheting.

Start Crocheting the Trim
RND 1: Join cornflower in the top left corner of a short end. 2 holes in from the left and top. You will be crocheting over 2 bars on the edge. Work one sc in each hole all the way around but work (2sc, ch2, 2sc) in each corner hole. Join w/slst to first sc. Fasten off cornflower.

RND 2: Join delft in ch2 lp in the corner. Ch5, sc, ch5, sc, ch5 in same ch2 corner lp andin each ch2 corner loop around. Work a sc in each sc on each side. Join w/slst to first sc. Fasten off and weave ends into back of work.

Follow the chart for cross stitching the design on. Or do what you want from here. The outer Blue rows are crocheted not cross Stitched.
