A delicate little bookmark pattern knitted with 1.00 mm needles. A real challenge for experienced knitters who want to try knitting with these fine needles.

The pattern can be easily adjusted to bigger needles, though the stitches used are specifically chosen for these tiny needles.

I used the Wollmeise Lace yarn in the natural, undyed color, but any other lace-weight yarn should be fine. Actually, cotton or silk might be even better, but use whatever scraps you got available.

This could be a really special project for someone who loves reading or simply wants to test their knitting skills.

You need to know how to read a chart for this pattern.
