9 Crochet Stitch Marker Ideas
Do you use stitch markers when you crochet? I actually do quite a bit. When I’m working in the round, I like to mark my beginning stitch. I also find them quite handy to keep track of corners, edges or really long chains. I have to admit, I have a nice collection of markers, from bobby pins to extra fancy. Mikey likes to simply use yarn on his projects!
Using stitch markers can really help track of your crochet project. I always hear many saying they struggle to keep the edges of their projects straight. I suggest while you are learning, use a marker at the beginning and end of each row. Markers are also great when mastering the chevron stitch by using one at each peak of the chevron.
I have a collection of stitch marker ideas that you will enjoy.

I have spent way too much money on making stitch markers and buying stitch markers that just using a piece of yarn works just as well as anything else!!!!!
#4, the Removable Stitch Markers, are simply marked-up specialty safety pins. You can find them on Amazon as low as $2.50 (depending on color/finish) for a pack of 300, vs the $6 for 20 that Fringe Supply Company is charging. Search for “gourd pin”, referring to their shape.
