If you’re looking for a quick and easy project to pass the time, the Crochet Daisy Bookmark is for you. The pretty petalled wonder takes a tiny amount of yarn and can be whipped up in under an hour. If you’re looking for a Mother’s Day gift this is perfect paired with a good book (add a box of chocolates for maximum relaxation!) The daisy bookmark also makes a great self care project – these basic stitches don’t need too much concentration and there’s a lovely rhythm to making this project. Treat yourself!
