Cross Bookmarks Free Tatting Patterns

This collection of free tatting patterns for tatted cross bookmarks will provide special gifts for confirmation and church events, and heirloom items for many occasions.

Cross tiny by Gillian Buchanan star[offsite link]
This pattern by Gillian Buchanan uses a technique which she has developed using mock rings to make the traditional daisy motif. The cross is very quick to make and is not difficult despite appearances.

Cross Adrianaīs by Edda Guastalla star[offsite link]
Adrianaīs Cross is another lovely design by Edda Guastalla.

Cross Black Magic Vickie Reynolds star[offsite link]
A deceptively tricky design for a cross based on a pattern by Mary Konior, designed by Vicky Reynolds.

Cross Bookmark Riet Smeulders-Surtel star[offsite link]
Rietīs lovely cross bookmark contains some very unusual techniques incorporating Victorian Sets. No photo.

Cross Bookmark Sharon Albers star[offsite link]
Sharon Albersīs lovely cross has a tassel as well, and you will learn to do spiral tatting with this one.

Cross button Birgit Phelps star[offsite link]
Birgit Phelpsīs Button cross is very easy to make and such fun!

Cross by Heather Johnston star[offsite link]
Heather Johnston has designed a mini cross which is composed entirely of chains. Itīs not a beginnerīs piece but is very effective.

Cross celtic by Eileen Stafford star[offsite link]
Here is a design by Eileen Stafford with a workout in split rings and interlaced tatting.

Cross Celtic Dianna Stevens star[offsite link]
There has been some discussion on the Tatting mailing lists on the Internet about whether a needle is actually required for this complex design by Dianna Stevens, but I think it would certainly make the centre easier. This one requires some experience but is a wonderful design.

Cross Cluny Christiane Eichler star[offsite link]
Here is another pattern on which to practise your cluny tatting, this time by Christiane Eichler.

Cross Davidīs by Heather Johnston star[offsite link]
Here is a very imaginative design by Heather Johnston for a tatted cross bookmark which uses split rings and interwoven tatting for an unusual effect.

Cross Entwined Arms by Julie Patterson star[offsite link]
This pattern is from the newly re-released book of tatted crosses from Julie Patterson of Australia with 30 pages of large photos, easy to read diagrams and step by step directions. There is a list of illustrated abbreviations and her diagrams and explanations of the split ring, split chain, and crossed, beaded picots are excellent.

Cross Flaviaīs by Edda Guastalla star[offsite link]
This beautiful tatted cross pattern is on Edda Guastallaīs site. Again the instructions are in Italian and there is no diagram but the photos are clear and as she uses notational instructions the pieces should be reasonably easy to make.

Cross Flora by Roger Freedman star[offsite link]
Here is a very pretty little cross designed by Roger AKA Freedman. No photo

Cross God Bless America by Sheila star[offsite link]
There is a really tiny cross on this site which would make a great key fob or other small decoration. BY Sheila.

Cross Hearts & Flowers Julie Patternon star[offsite link]
This lovely pattern by Julie Patterson is well worth making and it is not difficult.

Cross interlinked by Gillian Buchanan star[offsite link]
A complex cross design by Gillian Buchanan. This one uses two pairs of shuttles and features self closing mock rings at the centre.

Cross Lavender Bookmark by Roger star[offsite link]
This cross design by Roger AKA Freedman is also very simple. No photo.

Cross Medallion by Roger star[offsite link]
Here is another pretty and very easy cross by Roger AKA Freedman. No photo.

Cross ring & chain by Roger star[offsite link]
cross by Roger AKA Freedman. No photo.

Cross Sharonīs by Gillian Buchanan star[offsite link]
This lovely cross was designed by your host for Sharon Fernandes in an online exchange. Sharon made me a really exquisite version of the Black Magic cross listed above.

Cross Simple Gillian Buchanan star[offsite link]
This design was used in the Online Tatting Class recently, as it features the use of Shuttle Thread Joins otherwise known as Downward Joins. It is not particularly difficult to make otherwise although some of the finishing off is into rather tight corners.

Simple Cross star[offsite link]
This is a simple bookmark cross tatted by a Benedictine Sister at the Monastery of St. Gertrudeīs in Cottonwood, Idaho.
