Stitch markers for me are a life saver where my knitting is concerned. I love to knit lace patterns but always seem to lose track of pattern repeats or stitch counts. This can be incredibly frustrating when you have over 500 stitches on your needles! I have had to rip back rows so many times because I lost count or simply got distracted. With this in mind I decided to make some stitch marker sets to use with my knitting projects.
Ways To Use Stitch Markers
When I am knitting a large lace project no matter how easy the lace pattern is I use ring stitch markers between repeats to help me keep track of the pattern and stitch count. For example the latest shawl I am knitting has a lot of stitches on it for the final pattern repeats. To help me keep track I have created some light stitch markers to help me keep track of my pattern repeats. This has helped my sanity no end making it easy to ensure my patterns line up.
