Coming to you from my rural Ohio studio, this set of 5 blue striped stitch markers fits US size 4 needles (3.5 mm European) and is perfect for knitters who like rustic beads. I make multiples of this set, so while yours may not match the ones in the photo exactly - you can see there is slight variation in the blue striped beads within the set shown - your set will be very similar, and include 1 row marker and 4 regular markers.
Yes, my markers are a bit more expensive than others you may find however:
*All of my wire ends are neatly tucked so that my markers are 100% snag free.
*I don't use glue, there's no mechanism to catch or break...
*Knitters who go to big knitting events told me that my markers trade at a rate of 1:3 (1 of my markers for 3 of others' markers because they ARE that good and THAT sturdy!)
*My markers also get tumbled for hours in a rock tumbler to shine the copper and harden them so they are really rugged.
*Every stitch marker set I ship comes sweetly packaged in a gift bag.
Not sure if your special knitter uses markers? If they make complex things like socks or fair isle sweaters, caps, etc., chances are good that they use 'em.
