Knitters Only

If you are a Knitter yourself, you may be interested in trying out some of the following tools. I have spent years researching the knitting notions market, experimenting with my own ideas and testing them against the best ideas of others. I have decided that these are the most efficient means of getting the job done in a way that still brings me joy. I have listed only the tools which I could buy from others while maintaining my self-respect.

To have a peek at the Readymades available to Those Who Do Not Knit, visit The Shop page.

If you have any questions about these listings, on any aspect at all, I would love to discuss them with you. Please send a message to CustomerService@tailoredknitsthatfit.com.

Knitting Jewelry

Stitch Markers

Silver hook, Swarovski crystal

Newly re-designed for Winter 2018! You can use these lovely pieces of knitting jewelry to mark strategic points along your needles. They will ensure you will never overshoot changes to the knitting in your pattern instructions by accident again. They are perfect for simply decorating your work as you go, to add a bit of sparkle to your already-enjoyable hobby!

Length: (hook) 0.75 inches/2.0 cm, (hook plus crystal) 1.25 inches / 3.1 cm
Width: (outside of hook) 3/8 inch/9.0 mm, (inside hole diameter) 0.25 inch / 6.0 mm

This marker uses an S-style hook, slightly flattened so as to keep your gauge accurate, and with a hole which is round and large enough to slide smoothly on needles up to US 9/5.5 mm.

If we sell out of your choice while the listing is still active, please request a custom order, and we will get one made and sent out to you as soon as possible!

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have, anytime.

Stitch Marker: Swarovski crystal, silver S-hook

A silver-toned S-hook, with a teardrop-shaped Swarovski crystal. Slides well on knitting needles up to size US 9 / 5.5 mm

$6.00

Colored beads on silver S-hook, set of four

Use these lovely pieces of knitting jewelry to track your progress! You can attach one at the beginning or end of armhole or heel shaping to facilitate measurement. Or, you can mark the spot where you started knitting for the day, and find out how many inches per hour you can get done! They are perfect for simply decorating your work as you go, to add a bit of sparkle to your already-enjoyable hobby!

Length: 1.25 inches/3 cm
Width: .25 inch/7 mm

Color choices refer to the silver-wrapped glass beads. Each set is four of the same color selected, but if you’d like a mixture of colors, please specify in a note with your order. All mini-beads are a tonal blue-green color.

The fancy silver hooks are versatile but a bit less secure than a regular lockable hook; they really work best as stitch markers.

Progress Keeper, silver hook and wrapped bead, mini bead, single

You can use this lovely piece of knitting jewelry to mark strategic points within your fabric. It will ensure that you will never overshoot changes to the knitting in your pattern instructions by accident again. It’s perfect for achieving accurate measurements of garment pieces, or for simply decorating your work as you go, to add a bit of sparkle to your already-enjoyable hobby!

Length: (self-closing hook) 0.5 inch / 1.3 cm; (self-closing hook plus beads) 1.5 inches / 3.8 cm
Width: (outside of self-closing hook) 0.25 inch/1.0 cm; (larger bead) 5/8 inch / 9.0 mm

Color choices refer only to the silver-wrapped glass beads. If you’d like a specific color, please add a note to your order.

Each piece is made of one colored glass bead wrapped in silver wire, with one blue-green glass mini bead and a silver-toned hook. The progress keeper uses a “self-closing” hook, where the lever keeps itself securely in place no matter how roughly your project is handled in transit. The hole is quite small, perfect for laceweight to sockweight yarn.

If we sell out of your choice while the listing is still active, please request a custom order, and we will get one made and sent out to you as soon as possible!

Progress Keepers: Colored lanyard hook, Tibetan silver charm, set of three

Use these lovely pieces of knitting jewelry to track your progress! You can attach one at the beginning or end of armhole or heel shaping to facilitate measurement. Or, you can mark the spot where you started knitting for the day, and find out how many inches per hour you can get done! They are perfect for simply decorating your work as you go, to add a bit of sparkle to your already-enjoyable hobby!

The charms are made of Tibetan silver. I’m using new colored lanyard-style hooks, in five colors: blue, black, red, green, and orange. Each set will be of the same hook color, per available inventory, unless you request a different assortment.

Length of hook: 7/8 inch / 2.25 cm
Inside hole width: 0.25 inch / 6.0 mm

Lanyard hooks are designed to be very secure and stable, so there is little danger of them popping off your project as you work, whether you are slipping them as markers or clipping them to your fabric as progress keepers. Double duty means double value to you! And the size of the hole in these hooks will easily accommodate knitting needle sizes up to US 9 / 5.5 mm.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have concerning a mix of color or charm designs, anytime.

The thin pins and small circumference rings fit small sized needles (US 00 through 4) well, and help you keep track of increases/decreases, even if you work your socks two-at-a-time.
