Set of 4 stitch markers for knitting produced at Manucrea headquarters in France (Drôme) - Handmade polymer clay items on a large silver jump ring.
Rings are wide enough to fit needles up to 7mm.

Stitch markers are often used to mark the end of a row when knitting with circular knitting needles (it is not obvious where the circle begins and ends). Slip a marker onto one needle when joining in the round and slip it to the other needle each time you pass by. These stitch markers are little items that can be slipped onto a knitting needle to mark a certain place in a row.
Stitch markers can be used as a reminder for pattern changes. Slip one on the needle when you need to mark where increases, decreases, or blocks of different stitches should be placed.
If you drop a stitch, you can grab a locking stitch marker and lock it into the loop to prevent it from unraveling.
Use stitch markers to count rows. If you're working a pattern that repeats often, you can place a stitch marker on every few rows and count as you go.

There are 2 types of stitch markers :
* The ring stitch marker: it is a simple ring that can be slipped over the end of your knitting needle.
* The locking stitch marker: this type is the most versatile for both knitting and crocheting projects. It has the shape of a safety pin which can be slipped over the needle or quickly locked into any loop in your knitting where you need to leave a mark.

Once you start using stitch markers for your knitting, you will not remember how you used to do without them. They can avoid many knitting mistakes. These are handy little accessories to have in your knitting toolkit and many work for crocheting projects as well.
