Need:Red and green #10 thread
size 7 steel hook
4" long cardboard piece for tassel
I used a B hook in sample.

This has been called by my son's class a flower, ladybug, piece of watermelon. So I am saying Flower for the inner circle. You can use any color to make it a flower, but i decided on red and light green for my bookmark.

FLOWER:Ch 6, slip stitch to form ring.

RND 1:Ch3, 17 dc in ring. Slip stitch to 3rd ch of beg ch 3. (18 sts.) Fasten off and weave in end.

PETALS: attach other color Ch 1, sc in same st. * Ch 3, sc in next st, do * around til last 65, sc in 6th ch from hook and then slip stitch in each ch til you get to last 2 chs, sc in last dc,ch 3, slip stitch in first sc.

fasten off.

FINISHING:wrap same color as used to make petals around 4" cardboard 20 times, cut at edge, Slip knot to ch 6 at bottom of bookmark, trim edges and weave in any pesky ends.

Hope you enjoy my bookmark.
