Simple Cro-Tat Bookmark

December 2012

1.5 mm
This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

After following Enfys’ lovely tutorial (, I was looking for free simple beginners patterns for cro-tatting, but there does not seem to be so much: many patterns around are for other tatting techniques, mainly for shuttle tatting, and a lot of them can’t be easily followed without in-depth knowledge.

So I decided to improvise, and the result is this simple bookmark.

If you have no knowledge of cro-tatting, please make sure to check out the tutorial and practise before launching into this project.

Note on hook size: I used a 1.5 mm tatting hook, which was the smallest in my possession at this time. It was a bit big for the thread, so in order to get tidier stitches and for easier manipulation when taking the stitches off the hook, you may want to use a smaller one!

Have fun and - please post pictures of completed objects!
