An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

This is Kersti Anear's Jessica bookmark in monochrome. There's a link to the pattern on the blog entry I wrote yesterday.
This bookmark is also Kersti's. It's called Floral Tatted Bookmark. I have a picture of it tatted in two colours, but I think on this one I prefer monochrome, which enhances the stylized nature of the design. The large rings could be a bit tricky for a beginner, but it's not a difficult pattern.
I've had this pattern in my files for a long time and made it a number of times. I found it before I started a blog, in a time when I was less fastidious about provenance! If anyone can tell me who the designer is, I'll be happy to credit them. The pattern is based on a classic idea, I have a Coats booklet with an edging that looks like this, and some of Renulek's designs use it too.
