10 things you should know about Atomic Knitting Stitch Markers 

For those who knit and crochet, a stitch marker can be a valuable piece of kit to keep your knitting or crochet project on track. We’ve grown our business around this fundamental knitting accessory that has proved a popular addition to most project bags.

We would be lost without ours – the beaded cabled scarf project below used Halo rings to track the cabling and counting markers to track the number of stitches, acting as a reminder to add the beads (although for those counting the stitches in the photo, the 20 markers were used in place of 10’s and the 50 is used as a mid point count). Using the stitch markers in this way, made this project much more enjoyable to work on, without fear or losing/gaining stitches or adding beads in the wrong place.
