If you like knitting gadgets, then you will love these stitch wires.
For example, if you are knitting on a sweater and have to put the sleeve stitches on hold, simply put the wire over one end of the circular needle and slide the stitches onto the stitch wire. Once all the stitches have been slipped over, you can tie a knot in order to secure the stitches on the wire.
Each bag contains 12 wires in 12 happy mixed colors.
The wires are best suited for sizes 4.5 - 5 mm (US 7-8) knitting needles. Please note that these wires cannot replace cables for interchangeable circular knitting needles.
Measurements: 12 x 1 m (1.1 yds)
Wow! Why didn’t I use those stitch holders before? It’s so easy. Simply put the point of the needle in the hole of the cable and slide the stitches over. Tie in a knot and hey, presto, yours stitches are safe and secure. Repeat process to place stitches back on the needle. Much less cumbersome than ‘normal’ stitch holders. I have cut a very long cable in half to make sleeve stitch holders. I truly recommend this product!
These stitch holders work really well. They are thin so you can use them for fingering weight yarn as well all the. Other size yarns. The colors are great so you can use one color for increases and another for beginning of the round in knitting.
I love these stitch markers. Glad I ordered both sizes and I can even share with a friend. No more putting stitches on scrap yarn! Love love love
I tried using this new product I received working on my tank top my stiches would not slide easily onto this very hard to work with. It may be the yarn I’ll try it again with another kind of yarn. Great concept but I’m not happy with this item and I bought both sizes.
