Red Poppy Bookmark - DK Wool
I love knitting motifs into my designs and I know from talking to people about knitting that they like to learn new skills. So, my bookmark design is a short project with new skills, but quick enough to make something for yourself, or as a gift. It is also a great way to use up your scraps of wool or recycle wool. It would make brilliant quick knits for community craft stalls. As we remember 100 years of the end of WWI in the UK, on November 11th 2018, I thought using a poppy design would be suitable. I have used three colours and the wool is weaved into the back of the work, like Fair Isle knitting. The bookmark is made up of two pieces and sewn together. It is knitted on 3mm knitting needles, so not too thick for a book.
