Stitch Markers are your friends in knitting. They help you keep track of your work and prevent mistakes.
Woolybutt also offers a great selection of quality stitch markers for all your needs. Stitch Markers are often used to mark the end of a row when knitting in the round with circular knitting needles. They can be used as a reminder for pattern changes.
If you drop a stitch and cannot fix it immediately, a locking stitch marker can be placed on the loop of the dropped stitch so it doesn’t unravel further.
They can be used to count rows. For instance, you can place a stitch marker every 10 rows when knitting in garter stitch and then you only have to count how many groups of 10 you have.
