MEASUREMENTS: Approximately 1 1/4" wide and 6 1/2" long

NEEDLES: US 1 (2.25 mm) straight needles or size you need to obtain correct gauge

Because this bookmark is bordered with moss sts it doesn't curl like a simple knitted bookmark would. Can make any length you want or can even turn it into a bracelet. Hope you like it! Enjoy
