A gorgeous glittering set of unique crochet stitch markers/progress keepers. Hearts abound in these lovely stitch markers; a fabulous set of tools, perfect as a gift for the crocheter in your life. One of the markers in this set features garnet gemstones, and garnet is the birthstone of January.
This listing is for a set of five crochet stitch markers; each marker is different:
Love Much Laugh Often is a wonderful recipe for a perfect relationship; a nice oval solid etched charm, double sided.
Rich dark red garnet beads, one 6mm in diameter, one 10mm, separated by a silver plated rondelle bead, atop a dangling zinc alloy puffy heart.
A silvery heart sits between red glowing glass beads – faceted, crackle and beautifully clear – with an exquisite filigree heart dangling beneath.
A red crackled glass heart separates two tiny Tibetan silver hearts.
A winged heart charm, zinc alloy and single-sided, from which dangles a rich red silver-lined bead and two tiny silver seed beads.
You will receive the five stitch markers as shown and described above; all charms are zinc alloy or Tibetan silver 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, as shown in the photographs.
