Crochet Easter Cross Pattern

With Easter right around the corner, I thought about making a crochet cross that can be used as a bookmark or as a decor element of a larger crochet composition. You can make the cross either single or multi-colour, small or big, with or without embellishments. Think of it as a base for creating something unique and deeply personal.

The pattern is fairly simple, you start by working it from the top, forming an intersection of the cross, and then moving down to form the vertical line. You just have to know the double crochet stitch to make this cross.
