I am an avid reader and have more books than will fit on the shelves at home, so invariably, I end up with piles of books next to the bed and pretty much anywhere else I read.  For many years I have folded over the corner of the page I was up to, before putting a book down (or more likely falling asleep with it in my hand and being woken with a fright by my partner THEN folding the page).  I learned how to make 2-dimensional things like flowers and stars so I made a few very simple book marks.

You need your favourite hook (mine is 3.5mm), yarn, scissors and tapestry needle.

Make a chain to your desired length, finish off, leaving a length for attaching to the top piece.

Make a flower or star or whatever you like really and attach it to your chain with the tapestry needle.  I added a bead to the end of mine but getting them to stay on was/is a work in progress. I don't want a big knot at the base because I find it a bit uggs, but haven't come up with a better plan yet.
