Knitting Tip: Stitch Markers

Stitch markers are an extremely helpful tool for knitters. There are two types of stitch markers, soft ring stitch markers that are made to stay on the needle and locking stitch markers that can be used on the needle or elsewhere on the knitted piece.

Soft ring stitch markers are closed loops and are really handy for marking a certain number of stitches on the needle, marking the beginning of a round, or marking where to make a particular stitch in a repeating pattern.

Locking stitch markers can open and be placed on the needle or knitted garment or taken back off easily. They're handy for marking off rows to help you easily count how many you've done or marking where to place buttons after your garment is completed. They're also handy for marking mistakes or where a garment needs to be mended if you want to handle them later or if you're signed up for our Any Project Workshop and will be bringing your project in for help.

Come by the store to check out our selection of stitch markers and find out more about the Any Project Workshop by visiting our website: http://fashionknit.net/collections/classes/products/any-project-workshop
