*************************

For the Knitting Stitch Marker:
You will receive a knitting stitch marker as shown; the charm is made from zinc alloy and is 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 lead free.

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; my stitch markers are made 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 or Locking Stitch Markers:
Please select the variation from the drop down menu. The lotus charm has a lobster clasp instead of the soldered marker ring. The small jump ring is made from silver-plated copper wire soldered closed with lead-free solder. The lobster clasp is silver plated.

A travelling or locking 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 fabric, 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 on any size of yarn.

When new, you may find that the lobster clasp is a little stiff, but will loosen up with use.

The charm used for this marker is single-sided, as shown.

    I have just purchased the lotus flower knitting stitch markers from Sue and they are beautiful. They arrive beautifully wrapped. Inside the wrapping you will find them in a gorgeous little fabric storage pouch. It was a pleasure buying from Sue, and I definitely would purchase from her again.
