The Knitting Barber cords are hollow silicone cables that you can use as stitch holders. Perfect for quickly getting your stitches on holders so you can try on your sweater or even for holding your stitches so you can use the needles on another project. Simply insert the tip of your knitting needle into the flexible silicone tube and slide those stitches right on / off.
Each tin comes with 3 cords: 1 - 60" cord and 2 - 30" cords.
How to Use TKB Cords:
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.
*Compatible with US 1-10.5 (2.25 mm – 7 mm) needles. Will work best with pointier needles rather than dull needle tips.
