Hi, I'm Cassandra Allen-Brown from and the Yarn Shop in Denver, Colorado. Today, I'm going to teach you how to make crocheted stitch markers. First, we need to review the materials that you will need to create a crocheted stitch marker. Any craft store in your local town where you live will have a section of beads and the items that you need, all of the materials to create a crocheted stitch marker. First, I think the most important thing to do is to determine the beads that you'd like to use. I have some glass beads here that are different sizes and then some smaller glass beads that are much smaller in size and then we have the pins, the actual pins that go in the stitch marker and we actually have the hook that goes into the end of the stitch marker. What will happen as your end result is you will have a crocheted stitch marker that looks like this. So now we will begin. The first thing you need to do is get one of your pins that have the flat end and then what you'll do is select a smaller glass bead. The next thing is you'll want to pick a larger size glass bead that complements the smaller one that you put on. Since we have red, I'm going to go with a gray, a dark gray, that looks really pretty. You just stick it through there and then we'll finalize it with another red small glass bead. Just select that, that's a beautiful combination. The final step will be to get your little hook and what you'll do is you'll stick the pin through the bottom of the hook. In order to make this stitch marker look like this one, you need the little tool that looks like miniature pliers and I don't happen to have that tool at the moment but any craft store will have this for you and what happens with that little tool, that little plier, you will take that tool and wrap it around and when you've wrapped it around, the tool will break the needle and then your stitch marker will be completed and your end result will look just like this. That's how you make a crocheted stitch marker. I'm Cassandra Allen-Brown, Yarn Shop in Denver, Colorado.
