LoisLeigh’s Story Time Jack with Pail Bookmark
Do you like the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Have you always admired his willingness to help Jill get some water? I made this reading companion bookmark series for fun. It commemorates Jack’s historic climb up the hill with Jill.
I really liked how it worked and I think the result is really cute.
This is a fast pattern to make and can be done in about a day. It makes a quick gift for a reader.
It uses simple crochet stitches such as sc, hdc, dc. The pattern is great at explaining how to make this bookmark with a darling end result sure to be any reader’s favorite.
It uses small amounts of crochet thread and any colors can be used so it is a great project to use up small amounts of crochet thread (25 yards being the most that is needed).
