Grooved Bamboo Cable Stitch Holder01-03KAB-CSHGroovedBamboo $15.00
Cable knitting has never been easier with our favorite Kinki Amibari grooved bamboo cable needles. Cable needles allow you to temporarily hold your stitches firmly until they need knitting and simplify your work significantly.
We love them because they make the switch from needles to cables feel natural and seamless. They have the perfect length, shape, and material, making it easy to move back and forth while you work. Their pointy tips allow to lift even the finest lace weight yarn stitches, and the grooves provide the ideal hold to secure the stitches in place. They are made with 100% bamboo, feeling soft and comfortable on the hands and allowing thread and string to slide off easily, two properties that cannot be emulated by other materials.
Pack includes three sizes (small, medium, and large), suitable for all projects. They are an essential tool if you're planning on knitting cables!
WHY WE LOVE IT — A design that firmly contains stitches, longer length than most cable needles, easy to handle, sharp tips, comfortable to hold, handmade, high-quality, ecofriendly + natural.
