Description

A lovely set of unique crochet stitch markers/progress keepers. Dive into the deep blue ocean, swim with dolphins while fish tickle your toes and whales waive their tails at you! These are beautiful markers to work with. This fabulous set of tools is an ideal gift for a crocheter (or to keep for yourself!).

This listing is for a set of five crochet stitch markers; each marker is different:

A whale-tail charm, filigree’d with Celtic knots, is decorated with dark blue glass pearls and silver coloured beads, representing the colour of the sea and the crests of the waves.
The fish charm swims beneath a stack of mother of pearl chips.
A Tibetan silver dolphin charm leaps beneath a rich blue banded agate bead.
The small stack of amazonite chips, large and small, is the colour of a beautiful calm Caribbean sea.
A stack of blue/brown Tiger’s Eye chips is a richly dark counterpoint to the calm blue of the amazonite.

You will receive the five stitch markers as shown and described above; all charms are zinc alloy or Tibetan silver (as stated) and are free of nickel, cadmium and lead; the jump rings are made from silver-plated copper wire soldered closed with lead-free low temperature silver solder. The lobster clasp is silver plated copper.

A travelling/locking/crochet 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 garter-stitch fabric or a specific row, 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 with any size of hook or yarn.

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

The charms used for these markers are a mixture of double-sided and single-sided.
