Add jewellery to your crochet and enhance your handicraft process.
This listing is for a single crochet stitch marker.
You will receive a travelling stitch marker as shown; the small round heart charm is made from zinc alloy and is free of nickel, cadmium and lead; the ring is made from silver-plated copper wire soldered closed with lead-free solder. The lobster clasp is silver plated copper.
A travelling 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 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 charm used for this marker is three dimensional.
