I am very interested in this.  I should be out of swap limbo by the time this starts, I hope.  I am just waiting for my partner to receive and then get feedback after that for my first swap.

I love stitch markers and now that I have taken up crochet I need some that will work for that. I love how different they look. It's one of thoes tings you make for yourself but it's so much fun to have someone make them for you too.

Here's a question for the crocheters - how many markers do you usually need for a project?

I have never needed more than one marker at a time for crochet.  But then I have only just this year started using them at all.  I don't use them for crochet projects that are worked back and forth or in joined rounds.  I only use them to mark the beginning of a round in amigurumi, because it is the only time I don't join my rounds.  Undecided  Did all that make sense? 

I'm curious to know how many others use, I am sure there are other uses I have not come across yet.

I knit.  I have used four stitch markers for knitting cardigan.  When I was knitting the pinwheel blanket, I think I have like 10.    When I knit hat in the round, I use 1 to mark the beginning of the row.  So the usage depends on what I am working on.

I personally like them in like a set of four or six and I like mix and match them.  I like them all different when I use them.

oohhh I love stitch markers. I keep making them

I blame Miss_Vicki for my addiction.  Wink Before she sent me the purtiest blue ones attached to a bracelet and keychains on the magic yarn ball swap I had just been using o rings swiped appropriated from the Boy's lab box or Dad's shed. They worked but they didn't give you that "ooohhh shiny" feeling you get with pretty beaded ones and charms  Cheesy

Oh yeah and to add to what everyone else has said, I use them to mark out stitches when casting on a large number too, cause well, I can't count and there is only so many times you can had it over to someone else to count for you before they get a little annoyed.

Are you kidding sharre!?  My absolute favourite markers are the ones you made for me!  They are the best.  I went out and bought the same beads you used, thats how great they are.  Of course, i am slack and never actually got around to making jewelery out of them as I had planned.  Last week I bought an extra pack to give to my knit/crochet goodie bag swap partner (if I get someone I think will like them that is).   Smiley  Sharing the love.

I too will admit to having a few packets of those knit beads around, I have to constantly stop myself buying another packet whenever I see them  Roll Eyes

But yes it is definitely true I love the ones you made for me. I can take the projects anywhere in any bag and not have to worry about forgetting the stitch markers cause they are on my wrist  Cheesy

Enlighten me, please. How does one go about attaching stitch markers to a bracelet? Do you just use lobster clasps or something?
