GumInMyHair,

Yeah, she's got it right.  These stitch markers would only work for knitting.  They hang on the needle, in between 2 stitches.

I also crochet, so I can understand how these wouldn't work for crocheting.

What you could do to make your own stitch markers for crochet is to get earring hooks for jewelry making - the kind that hook through your earlobe and don't need a backing/don't close.  Or you could get the kind that hook through the ear and have a closure (not a separate backing piece).  Then you could attach a beading dangly bit.  Basically, make a dangly earring!

That's so cute! I usually just get a paper clip and straighten them out. Then I attach a bead, and use my round nosed pliers to bend the top into a circle. Mine are much more crude, but they work.
