Why Use Stitch Markers?
Stitch markers are one of those tools I waited far too long to add to my notions bag. Starting out, I used scraps of yarn, paperclips, lobster clasps, whatever was handy. But only when I felt like I *had* too – usually I’d think I could manage without.
And then I’d make mistakes, have to take out my work, end up with wobbly edges and waste time finding stitches. Eventually, I got ahold of a “real” set of stitch markers, and I started using them. And using them. And using them some more!
For every project I make now, I use stitch markers. While I’m a better crocheter than I was – I also know how easy it is to make mistakes, and how much time using stitch markers saves me in the end!
In fact, I did a Livestream a while back where I talked about some of my favorite uses for stitch markers!
What Sets Clover Quick Locking Stitch Markers Apart?
As you can see, stitch markers are one of my favorite tools, and Clover’s are my absolute favorites. I use them every single day! They work for both crochet and knitting, so they’re great for everyone. There are 4 main things that set these stitch markers apart from the rest.
Clover Quick Locking Stitch Markers are made of plastic – as are most of the “safety pin” style stitch markers. And all such stitch markers should be stored open, not closed, for maximum lifespan.
But while I’ve had plenty of other plastic stitch markers break on me, I’ve never snapped a Clover stitch marker. In fact, I’ve abused the heck out of them – stretching them wide open to help me line up seams, mark Jumbo yarns, and even running a few through the vacuum. The only ones I’ve lost are ones I’ve literally lost! These things keep on ticking!
Handy Set of Sizes
Each Clover Quick Locking Stitch Marker Set includes a total of 36 markers – 10 small, 20 medium, and 6 large. And there’s room in the case for a few more you might already own. (I have multiple sets, so I really fill mine up!)
These sizes are perfect for every size yarn from crochet thread to Super Bulky! Some Jumbo’s can be a bit big, but well, that’s Jumbo yarn for you – and you can usually hook a marker into the strand at least!
Great Carrying Case
I’ll be honest – there are probably stitch markers in every room of my house. But the majority of my collection stays in the handy case they came in. And that case easily fits right in my notions bag! Every once in a while, when it starts getting empty, I walk around the house and fill it back up again… This is totally a me problem, the case is perfect!
While it’s not the most important part… they are super cute too. Take a closer look – each stitch marker is a little sheep! ♥ What a wonderful touch!
But it’s not just for looks – the undulating shape of the pin portion helps prevent your stitches from stretching out. Clever *and* cute!
