The Subtle Knife - Five Handmade Stitch Markers - 6.5 mm (10.5 US) - Open Edition
"...a swirl of cloudy colors seemed to live just under the surface of the metal: bruise purples, sea blues, earth browns, cloud grays, the deep green under heavy-foliaged trees, the clustering shades at the mouth of a tomb as evening falls over a deserted graveyard.... If there was such a thing as shadow-colored, it was the blade of the subtle knife." - Philip Pullman, The Subtle Knife

This set of five handmade stitch markers are made of Tahitian freshwater black pearls. The multitude of subtle colors rippling under their surface makes them seem almost alive. As they slide along your needles they warm under your fingertips, their shifting, shadowy shades of purple, blue, green and grey illuminating your knitting.

Each marker hangs from a hammered silver ring that is seamless to prevent it from catching on your yarn. Perfect for those who like large, lightweight stitch markers. The markers will fit comfortably onto knitting needles up to 6.5 mm (10.5 US), and are featured in the photos on 6.5 mm (10.5 US) needles.

Need crochet markers? These stitch markers can be turned into closed or open hook marker for crochet enthusiasts - just tell me in the Notes to Seller area when you check out which crochet style you would prefer.

Many of my stitch markers are designed from deconstructed vintage jewelry and reclaimed beads, for one-of-a-kind pieces that make great gifts and keepsakes for knitters.
