Rainbow Fluorite is a lovely semi-transparent gemstone that comes in a number of colours and colour mixes; the most common are purple and a light sea-green, which harmonise perfectly. Enhance your crochet process, and keep track of your pattern repeats, with this stunning two-bead Rainbow Fluorite stitch marker. The larger round bead is 8mm in diameter, and is topped by a 6mm bicone. Each bead combination will be slightly different, making these stitch markers a unique addition to your work.
This listing is for a single knitting stitch marker consisting of a combination of an 8mm round and a 6mm bicone Rainbow Fluorite bead. The colour combinations will vary from marker to marker, but will always include one purple and one green bead.
You will receive a knitting stitch marker as shown; the beads are 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.
