Scrap of dk – worsted weight cotton, or other yarn
Needles to suit. You will need to knit quite tightly to get the knitting to curl so choose a size that will create a firm fabric.
1 pair tiny googly eyes or puffy fabric paint
Cast on 80 – 100 sts (sample uses 80sts and worsted weight yarn)
1st row: K2tog, repeat to end
2nd row: Cast off tightly, working k2tog across the row.
Break yarn leaving a long tail and fasten off. (This is the part of the bookmark that holds the place in our book).
Darn in end at cast on edge. Paint eyes and mouth using puffy fabric paint, or glue on googly eyes.
