Snag Free Knitting Stitch Markers

What are you most proud of? I'm always on the lookout for beads that will make cute stitch markers. Why use plastic ones from the craft store when you can use ones that will look beautiful on your needles!! These are for sale in my Etsy shop. I have LOTS of different types of stitch markers, even removable ones for crocheters!! The snag free markers won't snag your yarn or scratch your precious wooden needles, the wire loops don't open up like markers made with split rings can. The wire loops also slip easily between needles and are very light, perfect for lace knitting or sock knitting. The loops can be made to fit any size needles.

You Can Make This

Lavender Hill Knits made Snag Free Knitting Stitch Markers with:

  • pearl beads
  • beading wire

Q&A with Lavender Hill Knits

leslievin6954837 asked:
My yo are catching the stitch markers that the pattern calls for. This throws off the "yo holes" that form the shawl body. Any suggestions of how to overcome this?
Lavender Hill Knits answered:
Hi! You may have to hold the stitch marker to the left or right (depending on where the marker should be) while you work the stitch to keep it out of the way. Then release it once the stitch is worked.
