I bought some Susan Bates Cabone rings a while back ( http://joann.com/catalog.jhtml?CATID=82328&PRODID=11854 ) to use as stitch markers.  I've since made my own stitch markers and now I'm wondering what the true purpose of these rings is.  It says on the joann site to wrap yarn around them, but I can't really picture them in use.  Can someone link me to a pattern that uses them so I can see how they work?  Thanks!

I always wondered the same thing. I have seen them being used as part of homemade curtains/window shades. They were sewn in at intervals and string was run through them so you could pull up the curtain and it would fold nicely when pulled up.

You can also use the smaller ones for the base of a handmade button.  You crochet or weave or whatever around the ring.  I've got a book on it around here somewhere....... Probably in a safe place!  I'll never find it!

I see a lot of these rings used but crocheting one row around it, and connecting them to make jewelry.  Kind of like these, only without the gems in the middle.

I've been wondering it too. Though I am curious to know if maybe they could be used as handles for doll purses.

I think i've seen them crocheted around (as has been mentioned) and then used to make hanging kitchen towels.
