Have no fear… the Pumpkin Bramble❤tini Boooookmark is here!


Bramble❤tini bookmarkTonight is halloween. And since I love pumpkins, I thought it’d be nice to spice things up and treat myself to a pumkin-ized Bramble❤tini Heart Boooookmark… Mmwah hahahahaaa…
What do you think of it? I think it’s a neat little treat—not scary at all. And the only trick was a cinch, since my stash just happened to have “pumpkin” coloured yarn 😉

You can buy this pattern today for just $1.50, via Craftsy and Ravelry (I’m still trying to figure out how to add a PayPal link directly to this blog). Then you can start knitting your very own Bramble❤tini Heart “pumpkin patch” right away, using pumpkin/harvest coloured yarns 🙂

The pattern PDF includes instructions to knit
2-sided AND 1-sided Bramble❤tini Hearts.

HOW TO MAKE: the Bramble❤tini Heart Bookmark with a drawstring loop
(as pictured, featuring flexible design to fit various sizes of books).

1. Knit a heart.
 — knit either one 2-sided heart,
— — or knit two 1-sided hearts (increasing needle size to make the back heart
— — slightly larger than the front, then sewing the two 1-sided hearts together).
2. Cut a length of yarn.
 — I used a strand measuring approximately 3x the height of my book.
3. Secure one end of the yarn strand to inside (WS) of the 2 sides.
4. Insert the other yarn end (out toward RS) through the heart’s backside B&T.
 — pull just enough to tie a big knot, making this your pull-tab end.

That’s it!
Wrap the loop around your book and never lose your page again 🙂
And remember, I’m right here if anyone has any questions.
