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. Lovely captures! It's a really interesting spot to find a bench and it seems as if nature has been trying to reclaim it! - Tasha

    1. The river bank erosion is an ongoing issue for most of the river, I don't know how old the bench is but it must've been put in before the council knew about maintaining the river banks.

  2. What an interesting capture! It seems like it would have been a great spot for a bench - too bad that it's in disrepair.

    Thank you for sharing it with us at Photo Friday!

    1. It was there for the fishermen to fish from I think. It's really well hidden from the grassy area above until you are standing right next to it, it was such a surprise to discover.
