This is a simple pattern that can be made quickly and with a minimal amount of yarn. As always the color and yarn choices are your own.
- Lily Sugar 'n Cream Cotton in Wine
- size I crochet hook (H hook for Lips)
- book for measuring length
- embroidery needle
Gauge is not important to this project.
- Chain (ch)
- Slip Stitch (sl st)
To make this project you will first need to make 2 Luscious Lips and finish them completely.
|This lacy chain will curl up and make it look like the lips are kissing!|
To make the bookmark tether: With I hook, chain 46.
sl st in the 4th ch from hook, this makes an attachment point for the lips.
Ch 3, *skip next stitch, sl st in next, ch 3*.
Repeat from * to * across the chain.
When you get to the last 2 stitches, instead of chaining 3, only ch 2 and sl st in last ch.
Leave a tail for securing lips to the tether.
Using the embroidery needle, attach one set of lips to the end where you finished the tether.
Cut a 4" to 6" piece of yarn and secure the second set of lips to the other end. You can attach like I did to the back of the Lips or if you prefer you can attach to the top or bottom lip.
Weave in all ends and secure.
Now you have a cute statement for that special someone. Happy Valentine's Day!
