Home made stitch markers

Recommended Posts

These can be used for knitting as well. I've used these for a number of years when commercial type stitch markers weren't available. They came about out of necessity when I was making up patterns for machine knitting and now I am finding them equally useful with my return to crochet. They come in many colours so I chose my bread according to my needs, John still doesn't know, he..he.. I don't know if these are available in the USA or UK but hopefully they are.

If you go to my flickr site I've done the stages that I go through to make them. Hugs Joyce

My favorite thing to use as stitch markers are the colored paperclips ;)

Gonna buy some of those. I was using small safety pins but this sounds better.

Like wire hangers in closets, I believe that the plastic clips breed in the drawer.

 

Have used the bread bag "clips" as small bobbins, but the side protrusions are extremely annoying because the yarn catches on them.

 

Like your suggestions for reshaping & smoothing; have you tried using a Dremel tool?
