The Knitting Barber | Cord Set
The TKB-Cords are perfect for holding your stitches in place of waste yarn, and to try projects on as you go.
Available in a rainbow of colors, each set of silicone cords includes 1 - 60" and 2 - 30" (perfect for the body and sleeves of a sweater) and are packed in a screw top tin.
These cords work well with needles up to a US 9 (5.5mm), but you may be successful using them with larger needles that have pointier tips.
Firmly press the tip of the cord onto your needle (~1 cm) and start sliding your knitting on or off the cord and remember to check that your joint is secured all the time.
When your stitches are in place, then gently remove the cord from the needle by pushing it off with your fingertip or nail, do not pull the cord off.
Just pop it gently like an expensive champagne cork.
These sets were designed by Jojo Stolpe and she makes each set by hand in Vasa, Finland.
