Hi Ronda! :waving: The photo tutorial (step by step creation of a stitch marker) is located on HERE ON page 4 of Custom Stitch Markers. I don't know if you ever plowed through far enough to find the tutorial. I didn't start the thread with the intentions of posting photos, or I would have put them on the Original Post. But, several knitters asked for some additional help on how to make them...so I made a stitch marker specially for this thread (and took step by step photos)
As things progressed on the thread, Larudden (Leslie) volunteered a lot of additonal ideas for making stitch markers that don't need a separate jumpring, and are ultimately less costly. :cheering:
Good luck, and don't hesitate to ask for additonal help!
