I make these for the school fete. I also did a heap at Christmas to put in the cards, and have a few on hand as a "Thank - yous" and Birthday Gifts, Mothers Day etc.They sell like crazy at charity fundraisers. I enjoy making them in different colours, and mount them on a piece of card with some words scribbled on. ala Happy Reading, Thinking of you etc.. Depends how soppy I am feeling .
While I am happy for you to make these for personal use, gifts and charity fundraising, please do not sell to make a personal profit.
Do have fun tho, as they are quick and easy once you get the hang of the fans. As a gift they are always appreciated.
Please respect my copyright. I post this as I love to share, but it is bad karma to copy paste, sell, or reproduce this pattern.
Those are great bookmarks. I've passed the link onto my sister who does a lot of thread/filet crochet and loves to make gifts. I'm always wowed by your works over at crochetville! ~Sam (simonssez)
cute bookmarks and I am going to make one
Hi Cupcake! Please visit my blog and see what happened: I´ve been RAOK´d with one of your Fan Bookmarks, made by a fairy godmother from Philippines!!!
PS: It would be nice, if you write a comment to her, she did an amazing work!
Thanks for the pattern. I made one tonight, posted the picture in my blog.
I just have to make some more (later) in different colors.
I'm working on this now and am truly loving it. So far I'm only on fan 4 :) This is my first bookmark thread crochet project. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Not sure how well it will work out but I'm thinking of adapting the pattern to a barrette since its so pretty. I think if i just make it as is and cover the metal part with the same yarn that i use to crochet it, I could attach to barrate and still have it lacey looking.
These are magnificent. I must try one. This is the best bookmark pattern I've seen in a long time.
I love that you wrote two sets of instructions, that was very thoughtful.
This is a very nice fan pattern. I love the fact that it has more than one "fan"
This is the prettiest bookmark I have ever seen. I can't wait to try this pattern. I also like to make bookmarks as small gifts for
family, friends and co-workers.
Those really are beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing your pattern! =) They'd make great accessory gifts on a package with the bow!
Please, what size crochet hook for the American instructions?
Very pretty! I'm going to try this.
I have been chasing this pattern all over crochetville, looking at pictures of this beautiful bookmark in all of its variations there. Thank you! I can't wait to make the pattern for myself and for friends.
Hi Cupcake. Thanks for sharing your fans creation. They are beautiful. I am going to try one today. I will post your site address to my site. If you like you may visit my crochet website at: http://ckglorac.tripod.com/thecrochetenthusiast
this is so beautiful. i can't wait to try!!!
Hi Cupcake! Just copied your bookmark patterns...was looking especially for the fan bookmark. They are all so pretty and the way you took the pics it looks like they're real and all out in the forest. Gonna try to get some made for RAOK'ing!
loopy1 @ C'ville
Just found your bookmark pattern through Ravelry. It's beautiful - I can't wait to crochet up a bunch. Thank you for a fabulous pattern!
Muchas gracias !!! Thank´s for your pattern , I will try to do it . Hugs from Chile , Vero
Thank you so much for sharing this pattern. I love how my fan bookmarks turned out. I hope I did your pattern justice. :)
This is a lovely pattern. A charitable organization I volunteer for (The Preemie Project has a craft sale coming up in a couple of months, I plan to make some of these to sell. Thanks for publishing it and giving permission to use it in this way! (I will make a few for myself, too, I'm sure.)
Thank you for the lovely gift idea. I made one of the fan book marks for my daughter and she will love it. I am going to give it to her for Christmas 2007. I am sure I will make some for myself too. I read alot and love beautiful and interesting book marks. This is both beautiful and interesting.
I think these make WONDERFUL charitable sales items!
I participate in numerous non-profits, and I'm always looking for quick crochet items to offer for sale at fundraisers.
I think this fan bookmark pattern will work like a charm.
I have some verigated thread, and I've been looking for a project to use it for, and now I think I've found the perfect use for it.
Hi there. Firstly, LOVELY bookmark! But most importantly, I thought you might want to see this: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Crafts/Crochet/auction-119912242.htm
Somebody has been trying to sell these bookmarks. I just thought that perhaps you might want to know.
These are beautiful. I found you on RoseRed's Ravelry gallery. I'm going to get some crochet cotton and give this a whirl, for a holiday gift. *thank you* for the American translation. HOW did we get such different terms?
Rose Red made me one of these as a gift - I LOVE it, and asked her for the pattern. Thanks for posting them! They are so beautiful and make very special gifts!
These are simply beautiful and thank you for posting the pattern for us!
BTW, I love all the wonderful things that you have made and shared with us. I can't wait to see what's next!
Thank you for this! I'm still new at crocheting but I'm tired of afghans and shawls. This is my newest project.
9fE7ng You have a talant! Write more!
What a wonderful pattern. Thanks so much for putting this up on the net! I tried it out, both with crochet thread and again with some Red Heart. I'm thinking of making a scarf using the Red Heart. What a delight!
Thank you so much for the pattern! I've been wanting to do this and I finally did. If you want to see my FO, please visit my blog, I also wrote something about you and your shop. :)

I loved your bookmark so much I made a "hybrid" of it and linked back to your site if you'd like to see it. Please go to:
Many thanks for your beautiful pattern,it is in my opinion the best on the web for bookmarkers.
Thanks so much for the pattern. i won't copy it but i want you to know that it's very difficult for me to stare at a screen for a long time. So i'm asking you for your permission to print this out in a larger type so I can read it.
ohhhhhhhh, i'm going to try to make this, but i'm worried................ i might have to get a class off you about thread crochet!

I'm Wanda from Mississippi. I got here from a link in Crochet Partners group. I love the bookmark. I will have to try my hand at making it.
Hi CupCake. Thank you for sharing your pattern. Your work is beautiful.
Just stumbled on your blog at lunchtime. Beautiful bookmarks! I know what my son's teachers are getting for Christmas next year...Thanks so much for sharing the pattern.
Thank you so much for sharing this pattern with us, it is absolutely beautiful. I am going to try and make one for myself and one as a gift for a friend who loves to read as much as I do. You are so talented, and once again thank you so much for sharing your talent with the rest of us. It is amazing how you have made such a beauty from thread.
Love this bookmark, saw it at Curves and have been searching for pattern. Jan Redcliffe
Thank you for sharing our pattern. They are beautiful!
Would you be willing to write this pattern up in a larger yarn as a scarf for a charity?

I linked to this post yesterday you can here where I talk about this pattern
I was thrilled to find this pattern. I am interested in continuous lace. As opposed to the kind you chain 74 stitches and you are limited to that length. I first saw this picture http://www.flickr.com/photos/sunshinescreations/2606769901/in/photostream/
and after a bit of investigating came across these instructions. Are you one and the same person? I posted the continuous lace pattern, giving credit to Sunshine and a link to her blog, then I posted your pattern, giving credit and a link to your blog. I hope this is alright. It said I had to ask permission. I hope that showing the lace to explain what I am trying to do is not infringing on anyone's toes.
Lovely, I would like to croche some to give them to special aunties in my grand daughter First Comunion if I may. Congratulations.
My Name is Martina,and my Home is Germany.I like your Fan-Bookmark,and I ask you,to Translation the Pattern,in German Text.I where verry happy,wenn i can do it.Sorry my english is not so good.
My Mail Tini.Rautenberg@t-online.de
my best Wishes Martina
thank you very much...so nice of you to share your pattern...
I have posted the picture of my work i my blog...hope you will be happy to see it.
Thanks for the pattern! What a lovely gift item, and fun to make too.
Oh, by the way...
On the American version, the 5 threads for the tassel should be 8 inches long and folded in half to make 4 inch tassel. (20 cm = 7.87 in)
I was given a bookmark just like this as a gift, It may have been from your pattern. WOW, thank you I love it and it will stay in my bible forever!
Dang! Those are beautiful. I've been looking for a bookmark pattern for some gifts forever. I'm so glad I found this one...and it's crochet, which means they'll go faster! Prettier than any of the knitted ones I've found too. Thanks for providing it for free.
Beautiful and thank you for the pattern
I really really love your designs... thanks for sharing your patterns...
I love Your designs very much!
I'm asking for permission to translate the Fan-bookmark pattern into Hungarian! (Only a few crocheters understand the English crochet abbreviations...)
Please visit my blog:
Thank You in advance!
hi... thanks for the pattern, I like it it's georgeous. I made a headband from the pattern, hope you don't mind
Thank you for this beautiful pattern! Bookmarks are great for scraps of yarn and make a nice small present. I really liked your instructions.
Love love I am going to make some right away:D
Lovely!What is the beautiful thread you used to make these?
Hiya Cupcake, thank you so much for this pattern. Like many others have said I first saw just a picture of this and it stuck in my mind.
I have sized this pattern up with DK yarn and a 3.5mm hook... sacrilege? ...I hope you don't think so as it's making the most beautiful Neck Scarf that I'm sure my MiL will adore.
This is very easy to do - I just tried it with worsted yarn just to see if I could do it. Thank you for sharing.
GrandmaLP from Kansas USA.
I am from the USA, and new to crochet. I have finished 3 fans and have gotten to the part that says, continue in this way until you have made 8 fans....does that mean to repeat rows 7-9...kinda confused on where to go...thanks so much!
great pattern thanx for sharing.
Thanks for the lovely pattern! I look forward to making one of these for myself.
I found your pattern on Ravelry and I love it! You can see the bookmark I made here: http://seaside-stitches.blogspot.com/2009/04/hooks-art.html
Thank you so much for your generous tutorial! I think I'll be making many more of these.
Hello! It is summer here is the USA in Michigan. I am a new crocheter. I love your scarf and the bookmark. My printer is very poor. I think I may just actually copy this by hand. Imagine that!! I do love it that much...Thanks!!
Hello! Again..I was wondering if you could tell what size of a crochet hook you used for the worsted weight scarf that you had on Ravelry? Thanks, Fluffybarks
These fan bookmarks are great for my bookclubs next book. We are reading a book by Lisa See called Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. It is based in 19th century China and about how these two women beacame friends using the languge called Nu Shu. They relayed many messges back and forth using anything they could without drawing suspicion, including thier fans.
I'm trying to figure out the shortcuts of the stiches, but it's so difficult... :( Do you the the pattern in international symbols? Or maybe even which shortcut represents which symbol?
Thanks for the pattern!
i have crocheted this bookmark last night, here is how it looks like:
I CROCHET BUT I NEVER FOLLOWED A PATERN I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SOME OF THESE VERY NICE
I came across this link looking through the 'cowl' tags on Ravelry and thought it was a great way of expanding on your lovely project. I wondered if you would allow me to post a link on my blog to your pattern? Thanks so much for posting this great piece.
This is an incredible beautiful quick and easy bookmark. All of the Chinese people admire it greatly. I am giving them out as holiday presents. They probably won't use them as bookmarks but will hang them as decoration.
Two suggestions for variations on this beatiful pattern:
1. change the first fan into a full "wheel" by expanding to 24 dc on the first round (sl to join, turn), 24 dc,ch on the second round (then sl to join, turn) and then sc,2ch,sc in 21 ch sp before ch 5 and continue with original pattern on round 3
2. instead of stopping short of the last 3 ch sp on round 3, continue sc,2ch,sc in all ch sp, and then dbl-tr (4 loops on hook) 3 ch sp back to create the base for the next fan, then continue as before.
And thanks for the beatiful pattern, I love it
I have seen this lovely bookmark pattern made into a scarf on Ravelry. It's gorgeous! But I think I'm doing something wrong! I seem okay up until the picot round....it just seems that when I make the picots, they don't look like picot-y enough....I get lost from this row onwards...can anyone give me suggestions as to how I can get this row and all the subsequent rows right? Thanks so much!
Wonderful pattern! Made one last night and can't wait to make more. Thank you for sharing.
What a lovely bookmark! I Tried it couple of days ago, and it was easy to make, even though it is so beautiful. I just have to repeat the same thing as Shirl: Thank you for sharing! =)
Hello, thank you so much for this very beautiful pattern. I have to try it!
I absolutely love this fan bookmark and tried it over the weekend gone by.
Unfortunately, I am unable to get the beginnings of the second fan right. I kept getting stuck at "then 5ch, skip 3 spaces and work 1sc into 2nd ch of first dc post of row 2. TURN. (This completes fan 1)"
Would it possible for you to give me a picture of how to get this out of my way? I am a beginner and am slow in figuring my way around...
thanks in advance,
Just wanted to say that I too adapted your fan bookmark pattern for a scarf. I'm on Ravelry as allotmentprincess; the finished scarf is in my projects. Hope you like it as much as I do - I have had so many compliments about it.
I love this pattern. I do not always have access to the internet and would really appreciate copying it to use whenever I have time to sit and work it up. I will not pass it on.
I just wanted to let you know that I just made one for myself and it turned out BEAUTIFUL. Thank you for sharing your pattern - you did a great job explaining :)
These bookmarks are really pretty! Thank you for offering the pattern. Do you have the yardage for one bookmark? I have 27 yds of crochet cotton and was wondering if that's enough.
You know, it's crazy! I have a scarf pattern that's almost exactly like this. Never thought of shrinking it into a bookmark. What a great idea!
I make a lot of bookmarks for school...this one will work up just great and I am sure the kids will love it. Thanks for your help encouraging the kids to read.
i really lv the design....
but it if you be bit more descriptive it will be a great help!!
Thanks for posting the instructions for this really pretty bookmark.
Thanks for posting instructions for this really pretty bookmark !
These are sooo gorgeous that I just had to make one for my sister! Thank you soo much for sharing! :)
I've made a bunch of these bookmarks and I've posted the pictures on my blog.I've linked this page as the reference for the pattern. Once again thank you for sharing the pattern.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for this pattern. It's the first time I've attempted something with a hook this small and following your directions was a breeze. Cheers!
I'm making a bunch of these for Christmas this year, and just wanted to mention, for the American version, 20 cm is about equal to 8", so cutting the tassels should be 5 strands 8" long.
Thanks for a great pattern!
That an amazing pattern. Many thanks for posting.
I would like translate this wonderful pattern into german language. I´m a member of a german crafts communitity and not all women can speak english.But they surely become enthusiastic by seeing this pattern.
Thanks so much for this free pattern :) I've just made a first bookmark as a present, and am looking frward to making more as the holidays approach. So again, many thanks!
Thanks Cupcake :)
Its so sweet of you to share this with us - its such ready gift idea for my friends !!! Thanks again~
Thanks so much for this pattern! These are lovely bookmarks. I'm thinking of using worsted weight yarn and making a scarf from this pattern as it is so unique but not difficult to make. I've crocheted 5 bookmarks so far and plan to share them with all my relatives. I can't stop!
Lovely i will definitely make these.
Hi Cupcake, thank you so much for this bookmark pattern! I love it, it's perfect for gift, and I have so much fun making it--I can't stop!! :DD
I love this pattern! I extended it to make it into a belt, and now all of my friends want one. I've had to buy different colors to satisfy all of there desires. I'm going to try to make this with two colors, binding off and switching every other fan. Don't know if it will work, but it's worth a shot. Thank you so much for posting this, and happy crocheting!

t...Gotta Love It!
Thank you for a nice pattern! I translated it in estonia and now I ask a premission to publish it on my blog (of course the reference will be to you blog).
I love making these. They are super easy and look like they took way more time to make then they actually did. I've got it down to 45 mintues a bookmarker. A prefect gift for a teacher or book lover. Thank you so much. I love making thses while I'm waiting for an appointment or a sports practice to finish up.
I have made these before and love them! I lost the pattern and just found it again. I love this pattern and am even thinking about just making one fan for a quickie bookmark. I am thinking of making 20 more more to give away at church on Sunday and don't think I can do it with the whole pattern. Thanks for the great pattern!!!
Hello there. Can I make these and sell them on etsy for a friend's Charity Foundation?
Beautiful work! I am starting one for a Christmas present; I love the pattern, and your tutorial is very clear. I have linked to your blog on http://diyjunkbox.blogspot.ie/2012/11/crochet-fan-bookmark-pattern-by.html Keep up the good work :)
Thanks so much!! I am creating a headache finding the perfect gift for my Mormon friend, I have finally found it!!
Hi ! That is sooooo cute pattern, but Ihave a question...
This pattern is in english, but I am from Estonia so can I translate it into Estonia and put it in my blog ?
hi! this pattern is so lovely! I made 1 and put the pics in my blog. thanks for sharing this awesome pattern.
Very nice bookmark, I´ve make couple already, all hed a great success. Thanks!
I adore this pattern! It translates really well into lace if you just continue making the fans. I actually made two strips as a wedding gift for a friend who participates in a historical reenactment group and she adored them!
