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.

Penannular brooches

Over the next few weeks we'll be bringing you a series on pennanular pins throughout history.
The British Museum alone has over 418 Penannular brooches in it's collection. This circular style pin has proved the test of time and extant examples can be found from Roman times through to today. It was very popular with the Picts, Vikings, Saxons and was repopularised in the 19thC Celtic revival period. Over the next few weeks we will explore various types of pennanular pins, their history and origins.
