Description

A fabulous set of six crochet stitch markers in the shape of chess pieces.

This listing is for a set of 6 crochet stitch markers, each 3D charm is a different chess piece. The set consists of one each King, Queen, Bishop, Castle, Knight, and Pawn.

The charms each have a lobster clasp instead of the soldered marker ring. The small jump ring is made from silver-plated copper wire soldered closed with lead-free solder. The lobster clasp is silver plated.

A travelling or locking stitch marker is used in knitting patterns where the marker needs to be moved even though the knitter has not reached the marker in order to be able to slip it. They can also be used to clip to the knitted fabric to indicate, for instance, the right side of the fabric, and they are invaluable in crochet for marking the beginning of a round.

The lobster clasp is approximately 5mm in diameter and has an opening size of 2.5mm; it is therefore only suitable for use as a knitting travelling stitch marker on needles of 2.5mm or smaller, although as a clip-on marker for knitting or crochet it can be used on any size of yarn.

When new, you may find that the lobster clasp is a little stiff, but will loosen up with use.

The charms used for this set of markers are fully rounded three dimensional pieces, as shown.
