Arrow Stitch Crochet Bookmark Free Pattern

The best secrets can be found hidden within the pages of a good book, wouldn’t you agree? I like to think of myself as a forever student and when it comes to reading, I enjoy the nostalgic feeling of holding a book in my hands. I tend to mark up the pages with colorful highlighters and decorate the margins with notes and ideas. Recently I stumbled into a little problem.

I’ve been using post its as bookmarks for the past year. Some might think they make useful placeholders, but at one point or another they always lose their stick. This week I decided to nip this problem in the butt and craft some pretty Arrow Stitch Crochet Bookmarks. These were a lot of fun to create, and they make my reading experience that much more personal.

Please find the free pattern I’ve created below. I hope you enjoy making them and be sure to put them to good use… hidden within the pages of a great book.
