In this month’s Simply Crochet magazine, not only are there some great patterns this time round (check out that cute teddy on the front) but this month’s freebie is one of the most useful.

 I usually end up defacing my magazines with pen as I tick off the rows I’ve completed but this handy gadget means that you can easily keep track.  It’s such a simple idea.  I don’t know why I’ve not seen these anywhere else before.
