No-Wrap Sock Heel Stitch Markers Perfect For Bulky Knits Set of 40 /SM60C
No wrap heel sock knitting snag free no snag stitch markers.
If you make no-wrap sock heels (for example, the type from "Crazy Toes and Heels" by Mary Beth Beatty) then this handy little set has been designed for you! No-wrap sock heels can be the cat's meow, but finding a way to keep track of your last "turn" isn't easy, especially if you stop knitting mid-heel and come back to finish it later!
40 sturdy solid metal rings have been strung on stronger-than-it-looks nylon cord. I "hang" the cord around my instep stitch holder and let the rings hang inside the sock. At every "turn" I slip a ring over my needle and it stays there until I come back to "finish" the turn. When I do, I simply flip the ring off and keep knitting. The handy cord keeps them all inside the sock! So superior to elastics or single stitch markers! Nothing ever gets lost or falls on the floor! In addition, having them all together like this makes them so much easier to find in your knitting bag!
These rings are a slightly larger size, big enough for "sport", worsted or DK weight socks and needles - perfect for bulkier socks and solid so there's no seam to snag on fine fiber! Although 40 sounds like a lot of rings, that's only 20 per side on a heel. True, the "average" bulky heel may only need 15 per side, but it's nice to have the extra in case you decide to knit for really big feet or Christmas stockings! These rings will fit needles up to 7mm (US size 9) Set of 40, strung.
