How Do You Crochet a Lace Bookmark?

You can use any of your favorite crochet lace stitches to make a lace crochet bookmark.

You can either work lengthwise or crosswise, just keep it long enough to hold the page in your book. For example, I made my bookmark 6.9” (17.5 cm) tall and added tassels.

Pretty Lace Crochet Bookmark Pattern – About the Design

The Diadem bookmark got its name from the little flowers that resemble a shape of a tiara.

The lacy crochet bookmark is made using the Lace Flower crochet stitch. The flower’s petals are made with the puff stitch, while the rest of the pattern consists of chains, single crochet, and double crochet which create the lace pattern.

Then 3 tassels are added for a more chic look.

Which Yarn Is Best For a Crochet Bookmark?

For my crochet bookmark, I used Alize Bahar Batik, which is 100% mercerized cotton Sport (#2) weight yarn. You can also use Fingering (#1) weight yarn.

I love using mercerized cotton for this kind of project because it’s got a little shine to it. The yarn is also sturdy and keeps its shape well after blocking.

  1. Hello Agat,
    I live in France and every year, there is an event in October named “Octobre rose” (pink October) to inform and collect money to fight breast cancer. The Institut Curie, one of the main cancer public hospital in France (and spacialized in breast cancer) has launched an operation to collect 20.000 bookmarks between june and october 2022. The symbol is that it represents the action of “turning the page”, continuing to live after breast cancer.
