  • These are so pretty, I wonder if they could be worked up in yarn to make skinny scarves? I love the delicate fans bookmark.

  • Dear Beatriz: I wish I could comment to you in Portugese, but I do not know that language. These bookmarks are extraordinary. I love the fan motif. And although they work up similarly, they look very different. Thank you for your generosity. Sincerely, Corky

  • BEAUTIFUL DESIGN!!! THE BEST THAT I HAVE SEEN, IN A LONG TIME. I WANT TO MAKE SOME BOOKMARKERS FOR SOME CO-WORKERS. THANK YOU.

  • Those are very lovely projects! :)

    But I was wondering...is there any way you could send me PDF of them?
    I'll tell you...

    I'm from Chile, so...I speak spanish
    Although I just loved your patterns, I tried doing them and could'nt get the instructions right...

    I would so much like to have detailed instructions to do them as a gift to my mum (mother's day in chile is just 5 days away!)
    So please, if you have a material with more detailed instructions, maybe some photos showing the step by step...
    Or some tutorial for dummies (jaja)
    please send it to me

    I would be so happy!
    :)

  • Thank you for these bookmarks they are really beautifuull!!
    Can you please explain something, where you say: 2nd row: Ch 5, tr in next st, what is the next stitch?
    I'm stuck to that point, thanks for sharing anyway!! :)

  • You made 11 trebles in the previous row; the 5 chains you've just made stand for the first stitch of the 2nd row (and if it was a treble, you'd make it inserting your hook in the 11th treble of the previous hook); so, the next stitch is the 10th treble of the previous row.

    By Blogger BeMedina, at 3:21 PM  

  • Excuse my English.

    Instead of (and if it was a treble, you'd make it inserting your hook in the 11th treble of the previous hook), read (and if it was a treble, you'd make it inserting your hook in the 11th treble of the previous ROW).

  • What does pb stand for? I believe it is in the 3rd row.
    Thanks, Pam

    By Blogger monkeytiger2008, at 5:04 PM  

  • It's a sc. Pb is the Brazilian abbreviation: ponto baixo. Excuse me and thank you. I'll correct the entry.

  • I have been trying to crochet the green bookmark ( one at bottom of page) for the last 2 days but getting nowhere and I do a lot of crocheting so PLEASE what am I doing wrong it is driving me mad but I will not give up

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:05 AM  

  • I'm not at your side to see what you are doing. So, it's very difficult for me to help. Why you aren't able to crochet it?

    By Blogger BeMedina, at 9:17 AM  

  • Thanks for reply but the pattern just does not seem to work out right, even a crochet friend of mine has had ago in case I was being thick but no luck is the pattern stitches for the USA as we are in the UK

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:03 AM  

  • Sorry, but as you must know, I'm not American nor Britain, I'm Brazilian and my native tongue is Portuguese. I have a lot more contact with American crocheters than with British crocheters, but you can easily find the equivalence between stitches at the web and translate the pattern. Someday I'll make a chart of it and nobody will have language issues with my poor English.
