Celtic Bookmark

I'm a bit tired of mignonette stitch now, and tired of working with white thread. So here's Lenore English's Tatted Celtic Bookmark. It's quite tricky to tat. I might redo it, using the alternative construction. The pattern uses size 20 thread, but I've used 40. I didn't want the bookmark to be too big or too thick. Also, the colours I wanted to use were in my size 40 stash. Having finished, I'm wondering if I should use colours that contrast less. I wanted the layers to show up, but it's not very subtle!

I'm going away for a few days, so I won't blog again until about Tuesday.


  1. Seeing it for the first time, I like the strong contrast. It helps me to see how the pattern evolves. Nice job!

  2. Looks really neat with 3 colors and interwoven!! :)

  3. Jane that Celtic book mark is just beautiful. I don't know if they are the right colours for Celtic, but I would like to see it in four shades of lilac through to purple.
    That must have been a challenge, even for you,

  4. "Quite tricky to tat"? It looks like a royal pain in the neck to me! You did a great job!

  5. Very clever! I love the look of this Jane!
