When knitting top-down, seamless sweaters, there comes a point when you need to take your sleeve or body stitches off onto a holder. This leather cord has the flexibility of yarn, but is firm enough to keep the stitches from disappearing up into themselves. The interior-threaded needle means you can knit onto and off of the cord – like a leather circular needle. The needles screw onto, and off of, the leather cord.
If you find you like to have multiple projects on the go, extra cords are available in theLeather Cord Set.

How to Use
