Butterfly and Flower
Of course it's not necessary to have a butterfly on either end of a bookmark. I tatted a spiral chain to join the poinsettia I tatted in June, using muskaan's pattern, to a butterfly. I tried Stephanie's tip of passing the shuttle in the same direction as the stitches every few half stitches, but I found it better to briefly roll the chain between my thumb and forefinger when I let the shuttle dangle. I think different things work for different people, it's certainly worth trying out different techniques.
