Turn to the Right Bookmark
I love knitting bookmarks. I have lots of reasons for this: the main ones are that I love to knit (particularly short projects that pack punch), and I love to read. In library school I heard all about the horrible things people use as “bibliorts”, and resolved to always use a bookmark. When we got married the DH and I gave out bookmarks as our favors. So, you see? Love the bookmark.
One great thing about knit bookmarks is that you can practice a new skill for a short project, and then decide whether you’ve gotten good enough at it to move onto something more challenging or if that’s a stitch that you can live without. This pattern makes extensive use of the Right Twist (RT) technique. I like to use this stitch in chunky weight yarns to simulate a 2-stitch cable as well as to make raised diagonal lines like in this bookmark.
