How to make beaded stitch markers February 25, 2010

Posted by hollyspinner in Craft, jewelry, Knitting, Life, Tutorial.

Here is a nice little tutorial on how to make a simple beaded stitch marker.  This is a great project to use up some of those left over beads.


  • A jump ring – in a size that will fit your knitting needle
  • A head pin
  • A seed bead – with a large enough hole to fit the head pin
  • A larger bead – for this project I used 6mm Red Howlite round beads
  • Round nosed pliers
  • Needle nosed or chain nosed pliers

The How-To

  1. Place the large bead on the head pin.

That is all there is to it.

Make one, make fifty.

Keep them all for your own knitty project or give them as gifts to all your fiber friends
