Please do not purchase the wrong type of stitch markers. Knitting stitch markers cannot be used with crochet.

In crochet a stitch marker is a memory aid used to mark important locations on your work in progress. Crochet patterns have a mathematical basis, so stitch markers serve as a visual reference that replaces the need to continually count stitches and reduces the error rate.

Stitch markers are used for noting the first stitch on a crochet round, marking increase or decrease points, or identifying key locations in a complex repetitive stitch pattern. They are very useful when crocheting socks too. New crocheters can also use stitch markers to identify a turning chain. Stitch markers can also mark attachment points for joining of a multi-part project, such as a sleeve, heel, etc.

Unlike knitting stitch markers, which are closed bands, crochet markers have open slots or opening catches so that they can be moved easily and replaced on new rows as a project item grows. In order to distinguish from other types of stitch markers, the markers designed for crochet use are also known as split stitch markers.

These two different textile arts require two different types of stitch markers.

Knitting Stitch Markers – attach to the knitting needle.

Crochet Stitch Markers – attach to the worked crochet.
