Item details

One pair of knitting pins!
The knitting pin or knitting hook is used in Portuguese Style knitting to feed yarn and control tension. This style of knitting is also known as Turkish knitting, and practiced in Eastern Europe like Greece, Bulgaria, Middle East and South America, where the yarn is often placed around the neck to keep the yarn untangled and at proper tension. The motion required to wrap the yarn around the needles are much smaller making it very efficient, great for anyone with injured or stiff fingers and wrists.

The pin, when hooked on clothing, is an alternative to placing the yarn around the neck. It removes any potential for the yarn to irritate the skin, and feeds the yarn through smoothly.

These pins are sturdy with a nice point that goes through clothing easily.

Dimension: 1.4 inches high (3.5 cm), 1 inch across at the hook level

I hope you enjoy Portuguese knitting for years to come! When you finish knitting for the day, please take your pin away from your top and put it away. This way you are going to avoid washing your pin in the washing machine and destroying it.

I ordered 2 of these pairs but only received one. I contacted Andrea and she immediately had the other pair in the mail to me. Excellent customer service...I couldn’t be happier.
