I have a PATTERN (http://freeknittingpatterns.lionbrand.com/patterns/kjif-babyBlanket.html) . It states: "Work 7 sts in Seed St, place marker, work Row 1 of Hourglass Pattern over center 109 sts, place marker, work 7 sts in Seed St".

What does place marker mean?

You place a stitch marker to remind you to do something at that place in the pattern. Its basically a ring of some sort that goes on your needle between sts and is slipped to the other needle when you come to it.

Wow those are some fancy ones, I still use the plain old plastic ones, and if the cat steals those, I just use a strand of contrasting yarn. I need some of those to make things look pretty... :inlove:

I just tie a little circle of contrasting color yarn, too...

hehe...They are groovy! I just made me some blue ones last week that are KILLER.

I used to use the yarn-loop method, but it always fell off!

LOL! If only!!! Actually, it's a bangle that you can wear, slip your markers off and on, and put them back. I'll have pictures up soon...

I use the little white rings that would go on curtain rods - when my parents remodeled and were tossing them, I pulled them all off and they work great - just little plastic circles, but they were free. :happydance:

I'm always looking for inexpensive alternative tools.

For small stitch holders, I use paper clips partially unbent.
