NEEDLE STITCH HOLDER KIT

28

When knitting top-down, seamless sweaters, there comes a point when you need to take your sleeve stitches off onto a holder.  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.

A set of additional cords is available here.

How to Use

  • Use the Stitch Holder Kit in lieu of scrap yarn whenever you need to hold live stitches. The threaded needles allow you to knit off of your leather cord.
  • Keep the contents of your kit in the reusable kraft drawer, lined with 100% wool felt.

Care

  • Just like hands, leather can get dry & needs moisturizing. We suggest treating the cord with 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.
