Angel & Lace Heirloom Cross©

This was made for a member of my Monthly Bookmarks KAL. After searching for a knitted cross bookmark, and being unable to find one anywhere, I offered to create one for her. This is the result.

Knitted on US size 3 needles with #10 Crochet Cotton, you end up with the results shown below. I think that this would be wonderful done in a laceweight or fingering weight alpaca fiber and you could even use a smaller needle for a smaller size or less lacy loops.
