DIY Stitch Markers

Stitch markers are an essential too for all knitters and crocheters. They help us keep track of where we are in a pattern, special stitch sections of a pattern, stitch counts and more.

There are two types of stitch markers, locking and ring stitch markers. Typically, locking stitch markers are used for crochet but they can also be used for knitting, if their opening is large enough. Some locking stitch markers are similar to safety pins while others have lobster clasps to hook onto your project.

The biggest difference is a locking stitch marker is removable at any time, while a ring stitch marker needs to have stitch worked to the marker before it can be removed.
