The Portuguese style of knitting is becoming more and more popular, as it allows you to tension the yarn either around your neck or with a pin attached to your shirt high on your shoulder. This method results in less movement in your hands, thus causing less strain on them.
Our pins attach to your clothing with powerful neodymium magnets, so as not to cause holes in the fabric. This pin features an image of vintage looking hot air balloon's, that has been placed under a glass cabochon, in a antique silver setting. The inside magnet is backed with a plastic gem, to prevent irritation to the skin and allow for easy grasping when removing the back. The yarn hook is large, to allow for bulkier yarns to glide through easily.
Please keep in mind that these are powerful magnets and are not suitable for use by people with pacemakers and should be kept safely away from small children.
