  1. I made it! So cool. Thank you! As a novice, I'm not sure how to decrease the width of this pattern. Any ideas?

  2. I absolutely adore this bookmark!! I read so much that it's almost criminal and I love, love, love bookmarks. I make them out of ribbon with double-sided bias tape between them and it stiffens them very nicely. Now I can use crochet as well!!
