In Row 4, should you have a total of 30 trb? It seems a lot, and doesn’t want to lay flat. Also, in Row 6, the pattern says to sc in the ch-1 sps, but you made ch-3 in the previous row. Should it be ch-1 instead?

What does trb stand for? Treble ?

Correct, it is a treble crochet stitch 😉

Hi Sandra:
It’s me again. I made a few adjustments to this pattern and the results were delightful. I used a smaller hook, I used number 20 cotton, I made 12 trb. in the third row instead of 15 and I added a tassel at the end of the bookmark string. This made the bookmark thinner, smaller and easier to insert into a book.

OOO Sounds interesting, I’d love to see! Send me a pic and I’ll post it, if u want 🙂 mhorsesbiz@yahoo.com

Hi Sandra:

I am sending you a couple of pictures of the bookmark. It is not that important to me that they be posted. I just wanted you to see it. If you want to post them that is OK with me as well. Regards Elaine P.S. Where are you?

Stella☆LunaC - May 26, 2013

Good morning Elaine! We are in SE Wisconsin – what part of Canada are you? I have a Standard Poodle friend in Ontario region, we brag about our special dogs often!
Are you in Ravelry? If so, Iook me up, I’m “manyhorsesmane”, I have all my crochet bookmarks and assorted doilies posted there, as well as my knitting adventures 🙂

Elaine Stewart - May 26, 2013

Good Morning Sandra: I am in a small town, Binbrook, just a little south of Hamilton, Ontario. I am not actually in Ravelry but I look there often for ideas and patterns. I crochet, knit and sew. I am a retired Kindergarten Teacher so now I can spend my time doing what I love. Looks like you love horses, dogs and bike riding. Is that your picture on the web site? This is just plain fun:) Regards Elaine

Stella☆LunaC - May 26, 2013

Hi Elaine, our business is called Many
Horses Jewelry Supply, it’s my hubs Native American name, funny we don’t have a single horse, just a dog nearly as big as one 🙂
We are in Elkhorn, about 2.5 hours north of Chicago, where my hubs is from – I’m originally from California myself.
I love getting out on my bike, it’s total freedom!

Thank you Sandra. I am sure that will help a great deal. It will be fun to make this pattern up. I can think of half a dozen friends that would love a book mark like this. Thanks again. Elaine

Stella☆LunaC - May 23, 2013

Hee, Elaine, I have made so many for friends, it’s burned in my memory~they are such a quick and easy gift, people don’t suspect it didn’t take HOURS to make and think it’s a pretty amazing talent~ 🙂

5. Elaine - May 21, 2013

I down loaded this pattern and am anxious to start. I noticed an abbreviation that I am not familiar with. It is, “S.o.S”
Can you help.

Stella☆LunaC - May 21, 2013

Hello Elaine
Here’s another Pineapple Doily pattern that will help explain what “S.o.S” means,
NOTE: 5th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 4, in sp of next shell make 2 dc, ch 5 and 2 dc; ch 4. Repeat from * around. Join.

Hereafter “shell over shell” will be referred to as “s.o.s”

Hope that helps!!! I’ll add it to my pattern as well 🙂

Happy Hooking!

Hello! I typed the pattern verbatum, but yes, there’s an ommission.

Here’s what it should read:
Row 4: S.o.S, ch 3, 1 trb, ch 1, 1trb in each of 15 trb, ch 3, S.o.S, ch 5, turn.

That should do it!


7. cereselle - October 14, 2009

Hello! I’m working on this, and running into a problem in Row 5. I do the SoS and ch 3, but there is no ch 3 sp to skip, as Row 4 had 1 trb in each of 15 trbs, then SoS, then ch 5 and turn.

So in Row 5, I skipped the first trb rather than the nonexistent ch 3 sp, then sc in the next 13 trbs. Is that correct?
