This post is for you, my fellow yarn enthusiasts. I am always looking for new, quick and easy crochet patterns to add to my arsenal. I need near-instant gratification, so projects like these crochet bookmarks are perfect for when I don’t have a lot of time to devote to my hooking.

That’s a bad crochet joke. In case you’re wondering.

Please note that some of these crochet bookmark patterns were created to be something other than a bookmark originally. However, they can easily serve the purpose of a bookmark because they are flat and/or sized appropriately.

Bonus: The majority (not all!) of these patterns are FREE.
