Item details

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, Mediterraneans, 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, 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

Color: silver gray nickle coating or gold. On some monitors the first picture appears to be blue, but it is the plain metal color.
