Item details

Row counter and stitchmarker in one. These Ginger Mint Row Buddies are a cute and clever little knitters' tool that hangs on your needle as both a stitchmarker and abacus row counter up to 99 rows. Perfect for knitting in the round or on straight needles. Can also be made with opening crochet hook. Don't strain your eyes with teeny tiny numbers or waste time hunting for your row counter. Row Buddies are super easy to use, but come with detailed instruction sheet because they are new and unusual!

As a long time knitter I wanted to create something that would make row counting easier, prettier and more reliable. Using my polymer clay experience I handcrafted these little beads which slide up and down their ribbons to keep track of your rows. One colour represents Singles (Silver) and the other Tens (Teal). Testers had this to say about them:

"I find it easy to use, the beads are secure and move up and down easily but not too easily which means they stay where they are put (which is often a problem with the plastic row counters)." - Trudy

"The beads slide easily but securely up the ribbon and feel very secure without slipping back down, they hold their place through the knitting process very well." - Susanne

"Security of beads was excellent. I didn't have any shifting, even with projects being transferred in and out of project bags." - Darrel

"I love them and will be recommending them to my fellow knitters as a 'must have' item in a knitters tool kit." - Susanne

These post letter rate so they are a great choice for sending overseas. I'm happy to make these in other colours too - just leave a note at checkout.

Designed and handcrafted by me in Melbourne, Australia. Follow me on Facebook for new designs, special offers and competitions.
