A simple pattern for 1 shuttle and ball.
Each ring is 4ds, j to last p of prev Ri (first ring made: p), 4ds, 2 p sep by 4 ds, 4 ds.
The first row consists of 19 rings. You then go on tatting the second row without cutting and tying. The second row is shown in a different color on the graph so you can easily see how the strip is constructed. The second strip is worked by directly joining it to the first strip. Please take care to join the first row of strip 2 to the first row of strip 1.
Variations: It is easy to change the length of the bookmark to your needs: Just work more or less rings in the first row. I'd recommend to work bookmarks with colored thread which is better visible on a white page than white or ecru thread. You can use different colors for shuttle and ball threads.
