Handmade Magnetic Portuguese Knitting Pin made from dark mauve polished jasper.
Description: - Head pin is dark mauve jasper - Sterling silver yarn hook - Dual magnet fastener
Measurements: - Total length is approximately 3 inches - Width is approximately .75 inches
**How it works: The pin has dual magnets. One magnet is permanently attached to the pin head and the other magnet is placed on the underside of your shirt then magnetically fastens to the magnet on the pin. These magnets are strong and will hold the pin securely.
**Packaging: The pin comes mounted on a presentation card and wrapped in a complementary handcrafted pillow gift box which can be reused. The gift boxes are individually made and may vary in color and design from the photo shown.
**What is Portuguese Knitting: Portuguese knitting is a traditional knitting technique for tensioning yarn while knitting. Originating in South America, Portuguese knitting has quickly become a favorite knitting technique in America thanks in large part to the wonderful tutorials on You Tube and Pinterest. Not only is this technique a fun and fast way to knit, it is incredibly gentle on hands, wrists, fingers and shoulders. The Portuguese knitting technique allows you to knit for hours without pain. If you suffer from arthritis or carpel tunnel syndrome, please look into Portuguese Knitting as it may reduce discomfort while knitting.
