5 Crochet Hacks That Will Give You More Crochet Time

If you are the type of person who has multiple WIPs going at any moment, a set of lettered stitch markers is a must. When you are ready to put away your project, simply mark it with the letter of the hook you used. When you return to that project, you will easily remember the needed hook and you’ll be able to pick right up where you left off. Think of the time that would be wasted if you were to put away your project and forget which hook you used.

I use my beaded, non-locking stitch markers especially when I am marking the first stitch of a round. These slide in and out of stitches quickly so they don’t slow me down. The blunt edge doesn’t snag the yarn. These work great for amigurumi and for hats that are worked in continuous rounds.
