Vincent's Sunflower - Five Snag Free Stitch Markers - Fits Up To 9.0mm (13 US) - Last Sets
"You know that the peony is Jeannin's, the hollyhock belongs to Quost, but the sunflower is somewhat my own." - Vincent Van Gogh, in a letter to his brother Theo, January 1889

To fully appreciate any painting of Vincent Van Gogh's you have to see it in person - the depth of his paint brings his canvas's to life, and nothing can compare. But now you take your own little piece of Van Gogh with you with this set of five handmade stitch markers that look like the famous sunflowers Vincent couldn't stop painting.

The markers are whimsical, charming pieces for your knitting. The bright yellowy beads look like the plucked petals of a sunflower, while the tipped amber seed beads are reminiscent of the rich brown center of the plant. From one marker hangs a silver hollow charm, dotted in a way that looks like the seeds from the sunflower's macro. It is perfect for marking a special stitch or the end of a row.

Each marker hangs from a silver ring that is soldered to prevent it from catching on your yarn. The markers will fit comfortably onto knitting needles up to 9.0mm (13 US), and are featured in the photos on 8.0 mm (11 US) needles.

Designed from deconstructed jewelry, vintage beads and found findings, these are one-of-a-kind pieces that make great gifts and keepsakes for knitters.
