The German Kunststricken designer Erich Engeln grafted over 500 pieces of lace during his time. He was busy designing and knitting his beautiful lace-work into his 90s. His patternbook No.91 includes also 10 bookmarks. Last night I knitted bookmark No. G. It took me about 2 hours to complete the piece. I used 2 mm needles, recommended are 1.5 mm needles.
Those small pieces of lace are great for beginners and to practice German lace. They include many of the stitches used in larger pieces. Beside, each bookmark makes a wonderful present for someone special.
