Sunflower Book Marker 2

 

HDC in next st, SC in next st, sl st into last st and the sl st into the following sc space

and ch 6 and repeat.

For a total of 16 petals. Sl st into beginning st and ch 1 & cut yarn.

Change colors to green and attach it to any back of any petal (to hide it)

and chain 40 or 45 if yarn is thicker or book your reading is long in length. (This is with regular size paper back in mind.) and on your 40th ch pull yarn to leave a loop open to attach the tassel to.

Making the Tassel 

 

 

Find something that is flat, or cut a piece of cardboard that measures 8 cms or 3 inches wide to wrap your yarn around.

 

Holding on to the tail, wrap your yarn around 10 times (5 times if using two strands of yarn) and cut your yarn on the same side where you started. Now same side cut along the wrapped yarn.

 

Now lay your yarn out flat and cut another piece of yarn, better to be to long than to short, place in the center of the strings of yarn and use it to type them together. Leave this tails at the top as you fold your tails in half.

 

Now cut another piece of string, again better to have to log than to short, and holding the string with one hand, wrap the yarn around about 4 or 5 times around the top of the tassel to make a head, not to tightly. Tie your string.

 

Now use your hook to feed these tails through the wrapped string you just tied to make the head.

 

Attach your original strings to the open chain you left before and tie them all together then feed those tails through the top connection

 

Cut tail ends to even them out and your done!
