Floral Stitch Marker Keeper Pattern

I made this quick little floral stitch marker keeper some time ago and popped the pattern up in Yarn Me Calm Community on Facebook and on Instagram.

I thought I should share it here too! 


It can be attached to scissors, hold your stitch markers and even has a central section that can be used as a small pincushion!!!

The wonderful Simone tested the pattern for me, thanks Simone ❤️❤️❤️

I used Katia Concept Cotton Cashmere on a 3.5mm Clover Amour Hook.

However you only need a small amount of yarn so its also a great way to use some scraps!

You need a small amount of fill for the pin cushion.
