Any knitter who has ever attempted to cast on or keep track of 408 stitches in a large project knows EXACTLY how frustrating it is to count them all. And then recount them all. Again. Aaaaaaand once more to be sure. Only to find out at the end of the row that NOPE, THE COUNT IS OFF. We all know this rage and probably have vivid and traumatic memories of what happened next...
Enter my solution: numbered stitch markers. Which go all the way up to 500. Laser cut from 1/8" thick Baltic birch plywood and lightly sanded, they feature sturdy metal bulb pins which easily open and close (watch out, they're sharp) to fasten to the cable or knitting, as needed. You can use them to keep track of pattern repeats, your stitch count or even to track your progress, by pinning them to your knitting at critical project milestones. Send your favourite knitter a this indispensable set of stitch markers to show them how much you appreciate their handknits!
- metal bulb pins
- Baltic birch plywood, leftover from larger laser cutting projects (upcycling for the win!)*
*The wood makes these VERY lightweight and they won't weigh down your cable when you're knitting lace. If any small burrs develop on the edges of the markers, a light swipe of sandpaper or even a nail file will take care of that. Please remember to remove your markers from your work prior to blocking or washing. These are not intended to be submerged in water.
- diameter: 3/4"
- thickness: 1/8"

PLEASE NOTE: these do NOT come with a storage case. I recommend storing them in a clean, reused candy tin or something similar. Please reduce, reuse, recycle (in that order)!
