Hand made silver stitch markers
These stitch markers are hand made from 100 % recycled Argentium silver, Elk market metal’s main metal used for jewellery. Each kit contains 15 stitch markers: 5 circles, 5 drops and 5 twists; open stitch markers in the shape of the symbol for “twisted stitch” used in knitting charts.
The circles and drops are closed stitch markers and are slipped from one needle to the other on every row of the work. They can be used to keep track of repeats in a pattern, to mark the beginning of a round or to mark out the stitch/stitches where an increase or decrease is repeated.
The circles and drops measure around 6-7 mm. The open twist markers measure around 9-10 mm, and can be slid on and off the stitches in your work, for example to mark out where the last increase or decrease was made. Each and every little marker is hand made in the Elk market studio - they are measured, cut, fused, shaped and hammered by hand, and there may thus be a slight variation in size and look between them.
The stitch markers come packed in a small round box measuring around 5,3 cm in diameter with a screw lid. The sticker is on the bottom of the box.
