What is a Stitch Marker?
A stitch marker is a mnemonic device used to distinguish important locations on a work in progress (WIP). A marker can be used to indicate increases, decreases, pattern changes, yarn changes, aid counting blocks of stitches and more!
stitch counting made easy
minimise mistakes, saving yourself time and yarn
gain confidence with complex patterns
our markers make excellent gifts and swaps for your knitter and crocheting friends
How to use Atomic Knitting Stitch Markers
place the stitch marker on the needle in your right hand and then knit as normal
when you reach the stitch marker again, simply move it across from the right hand needle to the left - remembering of course to perform the action that the stitch marker was denoting
remember the marker can be placed on either side of the knitting
choose from split or solid rings, depending on your project, yarn and level of experience - see the FAQ
Why buy Atomic Knitting markers?
our markers are tried and tested by our knitting team and each set is quality checked before dispatch
we've been designing our bespoke markers for many years and have sold many thousands of marker sets to knitters worldwide via our website and at yarn and fibre shows throughout the UK
we provide a range of ring sizes (from 2.5mm to 12mm) and we recommend buying the size that matches your needle size or is a maximum of 2 sizes higher than your needle size for best results
using markers that have sharp split rings, are too big, that use cheap findings or are poorly made may damage the yarn and affect the final FO - there are many such markers out there
see our customer feedback before you purchase and for peace of mind we have a 14 day no qibble return policy
we are a registered UK business, trading since 2006
our markers and knitting accessories regularly feature in UK knitting magazines including The Knitter, Let's Knit, Knitting, Simply Knitting, Knit Now and Knit Today to name a few.
