Stocking Stuffer Idea — Quick, Useful and Cute….Christmas Crochet . News
I bet you are starting to think about Christmas presents, and little items to use as Stocking Stuffers, this Christmas. I was doing the same and I decided that many of the people on my list this year will get some type of book from me. So, to go with it, in their stockings, I am making crochet bookmarks. As the weeks go on here in the next month, I will be adding more bookmark patterns, but today I am launching this one that I call the “Save My Place” Bookmark. It can be whipped up quickly and you can make it in so many different colors.
I used a “G” (4.25 mm) hook and Caron Simply Soft yarn (#4 weight). My bookmarks turned out great. Hope you try making some for yourself and for those on your Christmas list.
Here is the quick and easy pattern.
The ad-free .pdf version is available in my Ravelry Store, too.

*****I recommend that before starting your project, be sure to read the entire pattern so that you don’t run into any surprises and that you know exactly what materials are needed and what the pattern involves.*****
Skill Level: Beginner
Size: One Size ( 2.5 inches x 8 inches).
Caron Simply Soft yarn – 17-18 yards for each bookmark; Colors I used: Dark Sage and Autumn Red. (Any #4 weight yarn will work perfectly.)
Each skein of Caron Simply Soft is 6 oz./315 yards (170.1 g/(288 m)
Machine washable and dryable.
- Yarn – 17-18 yards
– Crochet Hook: Size “G” (4.25 mm)
- Yarn Needle (Used for working in loose yarn ends.)
- Finished Size: Approximately 2.5 inches wide x 8 inches long
Stitches Used in the Pattern:
– ch = chain
– sc = single crochet
– dc = double crochet
– sl st = slip stitch
– Cluster (CL): *YO (yarn over), insert the hook in specified st and draw up a loop to the height of a dc; YO and draw through 2 loops*; repeat from * to * two more times in the same stitch, YO and draw through 4 loops. This makes a Cluster (CL).
– Shell: In specified stitch, work (dc, ch 1, CL): the shell is made.
Stitch Multiple: 3 + 2
(You can adjust the length of your bookmark by using this stitch multiple to make it as small or as large as you want.)
4 inches = 4.5 Clusters across x 6 rows down
Row 1: Work a CL in the 5th chain from the hook; *skip 2 chains, work Shell in the next chain*; repeat from * to * across the row. End the last repeat with a dc (instead of the Shell) in the last chain; Ch 4, turn.
Row 2: Work a CL in the base of the Ch 4. *Work Shell in the top of the dc of the next Shell*. Repeat from * to * across the row, ending the last repeat with dc (instead of a shell) in the 3rd chain of the turning chain. Ch 4, turn.
Row 3: Repeat Row 2 but end with Ch 1 instead of Ch 4. Be sure to Turn at the end of the row.
Do not fasten off.
Round 1: Ch 1. Work 2 sc in the corner stitch. (This is your first corner.) Then, working down the first side, work 1 sc in the top of each stitch until you reach the next corner of the blanket. Work 3 sc in the corner stitch. (Second corner.). Work 2 sc in each dc space down the next side. Work 3 sc in the next corner stitch. (Third corner.). Work 1 sc in each stitch down the next side. Work 3 sc in the corner stitch. (Fourth corner.). Work 2 sc in each dc space down the last side. Work 1 sc in the corner stitch next to the 2 sc done at the beginning of the round. (This is back at the first corner.) Sl st to first sc.
Fasten off and weave in the loose ends.
Finished!!! Enjoy your bookmark!!! Make them in Christmas-y colors and insert into books that you give as gifts, or put a couple in as stocking stuffers!
Best Wishes and Stay Cozy!!!
