Make yourself a beautiful twisty, curly knitted bookmark or keyring with this fun and easy free knitting pattern. I made this bookmark twirl in a bright turquoise double knit yarn and added blue coloured beads.
You could also make a keyring, by adding three or more twirls and stitching them onto a keyring loop. There are just so many possibilities for knitted twirls!
The free pattern is below, but if you would like to purchase an ad-free PDF copy, which is easy to print out, please visit my shop or click on the pattern here to add to cart.
