Stitch markers are small rings that are used to mark your place while either knitting or crocheting. They are normally made of plastic or metal.
Stitch markers can be a fun way to express yourself while knitting. For the minimalist crafters, there are plenty of simple, no-frills metal stitch markers. Meanwhile, for those who like to accessorise we have a huge range of unique designs. We stock everything from glittery resin hearts to puffins in jumpers!
Because they are a useful accessory and come in so many styles, stitch markers make a great small gift or stocking stuffer for knitters and crocheters.
The best stitch markers for knitting
When knitting, there are two ways you can use stitch markers. The first way is by slipping the marker onto your needle between the stitches. This is used to mark things such as the beginning of a round, or the start of a new section of the pattern. When choosing stitch makers for this use, be careful not to buy ones that are too small to slip on your needles!
The second way is to attach the stich marker to a certain stitch directly. This can be useful when you need to count rows or find that stitch again later. If you’re planning on using this technique, make sure you choose a stitch marker that will open and close. We recommend split ring stitch markers, or markers with a lobster claw attachment.
A great option that covers both uses are opening or locking stitch markers. These are shaped a little like a safety pin and can be opened to hook onto a specific stitch or slipped onto the needle itself.
How to use stitch markers in crochet
In crochet, stitch markers can be used to mark a specific stitch. This can be useful if you need to count stitches, or measure how many rows you have done.
If you are buying stitch markers for crochet, it is important that you get ones that can open, such as locking (or opening) stitch makers, lobster claw markers, or split ring markers. This is because you’ll need to hook the marker into the stitch and then remove it later!
