I made these for my swap partner in the Is It Fall Yet? swap.

I used leverback earring findings for the markers.  They work great because they stay on well and are light enough so not to pull at your work.





Thanks for looking!  Wishing you a fabulous fall!  Grin

How do you use stitch markers?

Stitch markers are used in knit and crochet to mark certain rows or rounds or placement of joins or many other pattern help.  (I use mine a lot when working in rounds because I lose my place so easily.)

These stitch markers have a leverback that opens so you can slip the hook end through the stitch.  Then, the leverback is closed so the stitch marker stays in place while continuing your work. 

There are other types of stitch marker shapes such as lobster claw clasps (like those you find on the end of earrings) and split rings (where a ring has a slit in it so you can slide the marker in place).

I hope that helps!  Grin

Those are really nice. Where do you get the lever backs for stitch markers? These are just sooooo pretty!
