Place Marker?
I have a PATTERN . 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.

Markers
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...

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!
