Christmas Greetings Bookmark

Count: 27w X 113h
Finished Size     14/28 ct 1-7/8w X 8h in
                         16/32 ct 1-5/8w X 7h in
                         18/36 ct 1-1/2w X 6-1/4h in

Use 2 strands of floss for crosses and backstitch
Use 1 or 2 strands of Kreinik Braid
Use 2 stands for simple French Knot

This pattern will fit a Charles Craft Bookmark, or make your own out of your favorite fabric with lace or rickrack as an edging, if you so desire. Back with felt. Choose your favorite shades of red and green. Overdyes in muted tones would be lovely. Perhaps a Kreinik gold braid? Back stitch the letters. The little dots are French knots. If to be used in a book, do NOT substitute beads for the French knots.
