A lovely set of unique knitting and crochet stitch markers/progress keepers. Dream of the sea, of rock pools to investigate, and sand castles to build, and waves tickling your toes, as you work with these beautiful markers. This fabulous set of tools is an ideal gift for a knitter or crocheter.

This listing is for a set of five knitting or crochet stitch markers; each marker is different:

The Dreaming of the Sea charm is a rounded square punched charm, with three rainbow fluorite chips, the colour of seafoam.
The starfish charm is completed by glittering blue and gold glass beads and topped with a tiny gold-coloured Tibetan silver heart, the whole reminiscent of lazy days spent on the beach.
The round snail shell tops a lovely pebble-shaped Ocean Jasper bead; Ocean Jasper is a beautiful stone, and is found in many colours from green to mottled browns and creams.
The small stack of teal Apatite chips is the colour of a stormy sea, beautiful and dangerous.
The conical snail shell completes the set, and features a lovely mixture of glistening blue and green glass beads.

For the knitting markers:
You will receive five knitting stitch markers as shown and described above; the charms are made from zinc alloy 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.

For the crochet markers:
You will receive the five stitch markers as shown and described above; all charms are zinc alloy 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.
