What is the best yarn for bookmarks?

It all depends on the pattern you are working on. However, crocheters usually decide to go for thinner types of yarn so that the bookmarks don’t end up way too thick. This way they won’t stretch the spines of your books too much.

For this reason, lace-weight yarn or fine sock yarn comes as chosen more often than worsted yarn. As for the fiber content, it also depends on the project. However, there is quite a lot of scope for flexibility too. The acrylic yarn, cotton yarn, or really any type of yarn can work well for making a bookmark.

What Crochet Hook Should I Use For Making Bookmarks?

The size of the crochet hook depends on the yarn used for the project. As a rule, smaller hooks work best for making bookmarks.

Crocheters usually use for this purpose hooks in sizes ranging from 3.5 mm to 1.5 mm. However, you may find bookmark patterns for which you will need to use a 4.5 or even 8 mm crochet hook. Therefore, it is always good to check the recommended crochet size in the description of a particular pattern.
