I keep seeing these crochet stitch markers everywhere with alphabet blocks, so you know what hook you used on the project. What an ingenuous idea! I don’t always put projects down for long, but if you are the type that has multiple WIPS, these could be a life saver for you.
Instead of calling them stitch markers, I’m calling them stitch savers. I just figured, you are trying to save your stitch as you put your project down for a while. I decided to make my own, and you can too!
Lobster Clips – bought from ButtonshedUK shop on Etsy
Letter Beads – bought from TIJC shop on Etsy
I’m not very experienced at jewelry making, but these were really easy to make. I used some of my beads on the Head pin, added the letter bead, and topped off with the remaining beads. Then I used the jewelry tools to bend the pin around the lobster clip. I made some for the common hook sizes, D through J. Overall, a quick and easy project. I made mine in about 1 hour or so.

These are so cute! I always forget to use my rather large collection of stitch markers but I love how you’ve made them so you know what hook you used. I’m in the UK so use the sizes in mm so the letters are all a bit foreign to me but this could be easily changed for numbers for us UK hookers!
You could easily substitute the letters for numbers for the hook sizes. There’s probably even a way to do the decimals too.
