I love making these little bookmarks. I don't have a pattern that I followed but that does not mean that others have not written out this simple pattern. So, here it is. I start by winding about 80 wraps on my bobbin with size 50 thread and then make a ring: 2(-2)6x's, then when I make the 2nd ring I hide the end from the first ring. Ring 2 has 7 picots as do all the rest of the rings you are going to make. next I take the thread I am going to use for the vine and place it between ring 1 and 2 and hide the ends of this as I start the vine: ch 2 + to last picot of ring 2, 5-5-2. Ring 3= 2+(to chain)2 (-2)6 x's. Do the shoe string know to change position of thread and make ring 4= 2-2-2+(to 3rd picot of ring 3)2-2-2-2-2. Make the last picot of ring 4 small, you are going to join the next chain to it. Make as many repeats of ring 3 and 4 as you like. I usually do 4 1/2 plus the last ring. Hope this makes sense to you, if you have any questions just let me know. Or if you see any mistakes let me know. Enjoy
