Enhance your crochet process, and keep track of your pattern repeats, with this lovely little hen.
This listing is for a single crochet stitch marker in the shape of a cute little hen.
You will receive a crochet stitch marker as shown; the charm is made from zinc alloy and is free of nickel, cadmium and lead; the ring is 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 lobster clasp is silver plated. The solder used is lead free.
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 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 charm used for this marker is double-sided, as shown.
