This one's for me

I've completed my second Priscilla Bookmark (the first one was given away as a Christmas gift). This one is tatted in Lizbeth size 80 Rainbow Taffy, and I am keeping it for myself :)


Without the tassel, it works out to be 1.5 inches wide and 6 inches long, which fits well into a book.


I typically don't read much. Maybe this bookmark will get me to start.

I've posted a printable PDF of this pattern on my Free Patterns page. There has been a bug in Google Drive which blocks PDF files from being shared. It looks like it's fixed now, but just in case it's not, I have included two links to this pattern on my Free Patterns page. The bottom link will take you to the post about the bookmark, which contains a diagram for completing it.

  6. Thanks everyone :)

    The interlocking split rings were a first for me. I think they would look really good with a Celtic style bookmark. They seem to clash a bit with the Priscilla Bookmark, but it's still good data for my experimentations.

    Muskaan, size 80 is not so bad, you should try it! I would recommend DMC over Lizbeth as it slides much easier. Was having some fits with not being able to fully close my rings in this bookmark.
