Each Leather Cord and Needle Stitch Holder Kit contains:
- 2 interior-threaded needles made of nickel plated steel Three lengths of leather cord:
- 1 Long Cord holds sts of sweater body – 150 cm / 59"
- 2 Short Cords holds sts of sleeves – 75 cm / 29.5"
- 1 reusable kraft drawer, lined with 100% wool felt
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.
A leather cord, on the contrary, has the flexibility of yarn but is 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.
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.

The fiber is hand-combed from the soft undercoats with no harm to the animals and further, without any depigmentation process, spun in the finest mills in the foothills of the Italian Alps.
