Enhance your knitting process, and keep track of your pattern repeats, with this gorgeous purple banded agate stitch marker.
This listing is for a single knitting stitch marker consisting of a 12mm purple banded agate bead topped with a silver glass bead. The depth of colour and banding varies from bead to bead, and no two stones are alike. The photographs show the degrees of variation available. If you specifically want darker stones, then please add a note to that effect when buying, otherwise you will receive a random bead.
You will receive a knitting stitch marker as shown; the 12mm bead is suspended on a silver plated pin which is free of nickel, cadmium and lead; 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.
This charm is also available as part of the Spring Is Sprung Knitting Stitch Marker Set.
