Anastasia Tatted Bookmark Pattern

Anastasia Tatted Bookmark Pattern

AnastasiaAnastasia

© 1998 Kersti Anear

This pattern was inspired by a collar design and created for the March/April 1998 Bookmark Exchange. To me it is a very regal pattern with the crown on the top.

Sample shown at original size, tatted with DMC Coton A Broder in colour number 312.

The bookmark is made up of one main body piece and then two crowning rows. You will need two shuttles for the second crowning row.
