Each marker is fitted with a ring that fits up to a US3 needle.

How to use with socks that have a increase every other row:
The stitch markers lay flat against your work and only have writing on one side. When you have a pattern when the increases need to happen every other row, perform the increase/decrease, then flip the marker to the blank side when you slip the marker. When you come around to the markers on the next round and the blank side is up, don’t do the increase/decrease, flip and slip the markers.
How to use with larger needles:
This set includes metal bulb-style opening stitch markers that fit larger needles. Open them up and hang your marker on there to use with sweaters, scarves, etc.
Each marker is very tiny and measures less than 1/4 inch across. The box is approximately 1 3/4 by 1 inch.
