Here are some little dice stitch markers for noting one's place in knitting projects, and I just made a whole bunch! I never made these before but I've been inspired by some that I've seen here on Craftster lately and thought... I should try that!

If you have some pliers and basic findings, you can make them too! Believe me, I didn't know what I was doing and they came out great!

The clever thing about these stitch markers is that they are convertible to 2 sizes! The second ring is smaller, and fits best around size 0 through 5. The top ring is larger, and fits best on sizes 5 through 10.5...Can you tell how pleased I am with myself for thinking of it? I'm just hoping they won't get themselves into trouble as much, now that they fit better.



PS - this photobucket widget really rocks! Posting photos was a snap!

excellent job!  the two ring system is a great idea...I may have to use that myself.  I have been wanting to make my own stitch markers for some time now but didn't want to delve into yet another craft and all the tools!  thanks for the inspiration.
