How do you use circular stitch markers?
Slip a marker onto one needle when joining in the round and slip it to the other needle each time you pass by. Stitch markers can be used as a reminder for pattern changes. Slip one on the needle when you need to mark where increases, decreases, or blocks of different stitches should be placed.
What can I use instead of stitch markers?
Floss – Whether regular, minty-fresh, or embroidered, floss works as a great stitch marking substitute. Just try to use a floss color that you can see well. Safety Pins – Safety pins are a very effective, make-shift stitch marker. Just be careful using them, as they can easily get stuck in the closure and snag.
Can you use paper clips as stitch markers?
Paperclip: This is one of the most versatile tools you can have! It makes an excellent stitch marker as is, or you can unbend it to create a cable needle or double-pointed needle.
