Hi from the Southwest! How is everyone doing? The temps are starting to fall here in the desert and we’re having those dark and stormy nights that I love so much this time of year. Perfect for watching spooky movies by the fireplace while knitting & crocheting. Anyway, I wanted to share a little project I recently finished - DIY knit stitch markers.
I’d lost some of my favorite ones and decided to make a few more. I couldn’t find the letter beads I wanted (had to order them online) but found these gorgeous skull & rose beads I decided to use instead. Here’s how I did it.
Materials: (I got everything at my local Joann Crafts store)
seed beads, skull & rose beads
9 mm split jump rings
Step 1: stack the beads the way you want them on the eye pin, top withe a jump ring.
Step 2: Bend the eye pin over the jump ring and secure it with the pliers.
Step 3: Enjoy!
Couple other tips - I like the split jump rings better than other kinds for knitting markers because they don’t seem to snag on your yarn. For crochet stitch markers, just substitute a lobster claw jewelry clasp for the jump ring.
I hope you liked this little tutorial on how I made my stitch markers! Happy making from my bohemian heart to yours xo
