    It is, Challice, thanks!

    Rachel, I don’t know if Hobby Lobby carries sock yarn anymore. They used to, but I haven’t seen it in a while, and granted, I haven’t checked in a while, either. But don’t forget we saw there was a yarn shop in your area. 😉 If you can’t find any sock yarn, try some of the same thickness…snip a piece of AMA’s sock yarn and bring it along.

      I too am wondering how this would convert into a scarf. Has anyone tried it and if so, how did it come out? Thank you.

    Thank you for the pattern for this lovely bookmark! My 9 yo daughter was browsing Ravelry and picked it out for me to make for her and then found your blog! This afternoon I’m going to grab a cup of tea and enjoy the rest of your blog, then get knitting on that bookmark!

    So pretty! Arrived here via a Ravelry linkage and now I have a new bookmark added to my queue and a blog added to my reader.

    Like Tonya I found you via a ravelry linkage. What a good idea to knit bookmarks. I’ll do that now.
    Your blog is now added to my reader. Thank you

    I’m experimenting with fiber blends, and I went scouting for bookmark patterns. This was exactly what I wanted! I’ve posted a picture and a link back to your blog. Thanks for a great pattern!

      Vicki, Row 2 says “Row 2 and all even rows,” which would apply to 4, 6 &8. It’s a common pattern-compressor! Happy knitting!

    Sorry but I made a typo in my previous answer. Rows 4, 6 & 8 are done the same as Row 2 that’s why they are not listed.
