A lovely set of unique knitting stitch markers/progress keepers. Deep in the Forest . . . something stirs! Leaves rustle, owls hoot, trees reach their branches towards the moon. This fabulous set of tools is an ideal gift for a knitter or crocheter.
This listing is for a set of six knitting stitch markers; each marker is different:
A majestic tree, single-sided zinc alloy charm, sits in a clearing.
An owl charm, double-sided Tibetan silver, sits on two elegant, clear Smoky Quartz rondelle (flattened round) beads.
An acorn charm dangles beneath two gorgeous green Aventurine rondelles separated by a flat Tibetan silver spacer.
A small double-sided leaf drifts beneath a column of glorious green iridescent and crackle beads.
A Tibetan silver pine cone hangs beneath two green faceted round glass beads that glitter as the light catches them.
Finally, four lovely Fancy Jasper chips form a perfect column of milky greens and earthy tones.
You will receive six knitting stitch markers as shown and described above; the charms are made from zinc alloy or Tibetan silver and are 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 low temperature lead free silver solder.
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 becomes misshapen; I make my stitch markers 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.
The charms used for these markers are a mixture of double- and single-sided.
