Bump!

Maybe some of us are on the mood to treat ourselves to handmade, custom stitch markers at a fraction of LYS prices!

Stitch Markers I made
I made these stitch markers before I found the Knitting Help website. I had Googled making stitch markers and found a silk weaving site and the guy had a tutorial on how he made his stitch markers he used in his weaving. So I got all my supplies from JOANN Fabrics and sat down and made these many months ago. I tend to go simple but elegant.

I made some a while ago myself! What a fun project, and so easy too!

I should be making and using these, instead of using scrap pieces of yarn lol... I have all the stuff! I just recently got a spool of aluminum, so that I wouldn't have to use silver, too...

Thanks so much for bumping this tutorial!

It's awesome and I'm very glad to have it to review before making some more beaded markers!


Happy Knitting,

Ruthie

Your stitch markers have inspired me to turn that stash of Sculpey clay into some beads and make some for myself!

Your stitch markers are very pretty!
