Flower Bookmarks ~ Teacher Gifts

I made these pretty flower bookmarks as end of year gifts for teachers.

flower bookmarks

I chose colours I thought each teacher would like.

To make a bookmark ~
These instructions use UK terminology
Use a 3.5mm or 4mm hook
Flower :  Make 2
Chain 3, join with a slip stitch into a ring
Round 1: in yellow or white yarn
ch2, make 11tc into ring, slip stitch to join (12sts)
Round 2:  in contrast colour yarn
ch2, 4tc into same stitch, slip stitch into next stitch, 5tc into next stitch, slip stitch into next stitch, continue around. Fasten off. There should be 6 petals.
Sew the two flower centres together back to back. Leave the petals unjoined.
Stem :
Using green yarn, chain 45. Fasten off. Tie the bottom into a bow or make a simple knot.



  1. Good idea. I'm sure they will be used and more welcome than fattening choccies!

  2. I love all of your linkups this week - plus you've reminded me how much a like Joanne Harris novels.

    Thanks for linking up!

  3. Great idea, isn't it? I made similar bookmarks for my colleagues as new year gifts ;)
    Have a nice day!

  4. Very pretty! Thank you for linking up at "Link & Share Wednesdays", Rhondda

  5. Does anyone know what these conversions are in US? I've looked up conversion charts but some of these abbreviations aren't even on the charts such as "tc" and "sts". Thank you very much for any help!
