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. I think they are hardwood too, that makes that hard work even harder!

    1. When I first saw them I didn't realise they were carved and I thought they were pretty awesome. The carving was an added bonus. I'm sure Farmer Nick could manage them without the intricate carvings.

    1. It is just lovely. We like to go and walk the dogs there sometimes although it's a bit far to do it very often.

    1. I can't even imagine how long it took them to carve this. I wonder if it was one person or a more?
