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. Scrap yarn works, but tends to slip up into the stitches, making the job of getting each stitch back onto a needle laborious. You can leave them on a spare circular needle or cord – but it’s challenging to have needles and cord hanging everywhere. Cocoknits found that a leather cord had the flexibility of yarn, but was firm enough to keep the stitches from disappearing up into themselves. 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.
- Two interior-threaded needles
- Three lengths of leather cord
- one long (59"/150 cm)
- two short (29.5"/75 cm)
Cocoknits’ mission is to design beautiful, functional, tools and patterns for makers all over the world, so they may delight in the making. They believe every part of the creative process should be an enjoyable experience.
