Which Stitch Markers Are Best

When I first took up crochet I didn't have any stitch markers, I didn't even know stitch markers existed. It wasn't long before I knew about them and I learnt the value of using stitch markers, aka stitch savers. That first frustrating experience of when a project accidentally unravels because there's nothing holding onto the stitch to stop it coming undone or your crochet circle grows in ways it isn't supposed to and the worth of this tiny tool became obvious very quickly. But there are so many styles of stitch marker to choose from, locking, circle, coil-less, plastic, safety pins, thread, 3D printed... does it really make a difference which one you use? Is it just how pretty they are? I walk you through a dozen different stitch markers from items you have lying around your home to the fancy artisan styles. I share with you what features to look for and those that don't really hold up to the task.

    1. A friend of mine had an embroidery piece in the exhibit. She lives far away so I had to take photos for her.

  5. I love the angle and the way the light catches the shiny elections in the wall paper.

    1. It's actually a corrugated iron wall inside a huge warehouse, they brew boutique beers and ciders and have a restaurant too. It's a lovely place for a gallery display.
