Do you think this headband / bookmark alooks complicated to crochet? No, it’s absolutely not, you only need to know 2 stitches to make it. Long time ago when I just started my crochet journey, I made the same headband as a matching accessory to a baby gown that was decorated with a ribbon and pearl beads. And it’s just one of the ways to use this lace. Your imagination is your limit. If you know someone who loves reading books, old-style not e-ones :), make him/her a beautiful lace bookmark as a small gift for an occasion or simply because you want to.
