Stitch Marker Holder Pattern

I finally purchased some stitch holders for my crochet projects. I was using a bit of yarn and looping it through the stitch I wanted to mark. But, I always wanted the real thing. Not liking the package they came in, I decided to make my own holder. I thought I’d share the pattern here:

This stitch marker holder can be sewn to a hook book, project bag, or left alone.

Gauge isn’t critical for sizing something like this. Another reason to do a gauge swatch is to see if the fabric drapes the way you want.

Supplies: Caron Simply Soft Yarn, 4 medium weight, Iris, a couple yards

H hook(5.00mm)

Tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations: ch – chain

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

Size: 7 inches by 3 inches

Note: Using a larger hook for the starting chain can keep the beginning end of the item looking square when finished.

Note: Ch2 or ch3 at the beginning of a row counts as one stitch.

ch 23

  1. Sc in 3rd stitch from hook, 1ch in next 20 stitches. (21sc)

2. Ch2, 1sc in next 20 stitches. (21sc)

3 – 4. Repeat row 2.

5. Ch3, 1dc in next 3 stitches, (ch1, skip 1 stitch, 1dc in next stitch) 6 times, ch1, skip 1 stitch, 1dc in next 4 stitches. (7ch, 14dc)

6-9. Repeat row 2.

Fasten off and bury ends.
