Fun fan bookmark free pattern

I love those bookmark designs that have a motif at each end, and the centre piece is a long crochet chain that stays inside the book. The other day I wanted to whip up a quick gift for a friend  and I thought hmm, I'll make him a bookmark. So I got out some leftover yarn in bright orange and I got started. The result is this fun fan bookmark. It is incredibly quick and easy to make, I'd say it took me about 10 minutes. It was so quick and easy that I immedately made a green one too.

Here's how to make it:

Rnd 1 - 6 sc in a magic circle
Rnd 2 - 1sc, 1dc in each st around, join with ss to first stitch
Rnd 3 - ch 55
Rnd 4 - 7 dc in 3rd ch from hook, ch 3, turn
Rnd 5 - 2dc in each stitch. Fasten off, weave in ends.

And there you have a fun fan bookmark! Make lots of them and give them to your friends!
