Leather Cord and Needle Stitch Holder Kit
A great solution for flexible stitch holders! When knitting top-down, seamless sweaters, there comes a point when you need to take your sleeve stitches off onto a holder. Safety-pin type stitch holders don’t work for this.
The interior-threaded needle means you can knit onto and off of the cord – like a leather circular needle. The needles screw onto, and off of, the leather cord. This leather cord has the flexibility of yarn, but is firm enough to keep the stitches from disappearing up into themselves.
* Needles made of nickel plated steel
* Long Cord holds sts of sweater body - 59"
* Short Cords holds sts of sleeves - 29.5"
Care: Just like hands, leather can get dry & needs moisturizing. We suggest treating the cord with a thread conditioner to keep your cords smooth and limber.
Screw the needle on only until it is attached to the cord. If you continue to over-screw, you risk breaking the leather inside the needle.
Snipping the end of your leather cord at an angle will facilitate attaching the needle.
Leather has a grain, so be sure to "go with the grain" when sliding stitches on & off the cord.
