Fan Stack Bookmark

Here’s a quick, fun bookmark. This 1-shuttle pattern is made of as many “fans” as you wish to add. You can make this bookmark as long as you wish, just keep adding fans. Each row represents one fan, and is just five rings long.

I’ve found that this design is best done in more than one color because the design gets lost if you use only one color.

This bookmark was tatted with size 20 Flora thread.

This is a beginning-level 1-shuttle pattern.

Repeat row 2 until the bookmark is as long as you wish it to be.

To finish, cut a length of 1/4″ ribbon twice as long as you’d like it to be. Fold it in half and thread the folded end through the 1/2″ thread sections. Pull the ends of the ribbon through the loop and tighten.
