This knitting stitch marker features a Carnelian 6mm bead fashioned into a small but elegant stitch marker. Enhance your knitting process, and keep track of your pattern repeats, with this beautiful stitch marker. Carnelian is the birthstone of July, and this marker would make a special birthday gift for a knitter (or to keep for yourself!).
This listing is for a single knitting stitch marker using a single 6mm carnelian round bead. The gemstone, being a natural product, varies slightly in colour from marker to marker, ranging from a sandy colour, through orange, to a rich brown.
You will receive a knitting stitch marker as shown; the rings are made from silver-plated copper wire. Each ring is soldered closed so that the ring will not snag on your knitting whilst you are using it. The solder used is lead free.
The large ring measures 8mm across, and is suitable for use on knitting needles up to 6mm (US size 10, UK Imperial size 4). As a lace knitter myself, I have found this size to be the most comfortable to use, and the charms provide a little weight and interest to the knitting process.
Many commercially produced stitch markers use jump rings made from wire that is too thin and quickly become misshapen; my stitch markers are made from 1mm wire that maintains its shape in use. Many stitch markers are not soldered closed, so that the yarn is easily snagged; my stitch markers are soldered so that there is no gap in the ring to snag your yarn.
