Stitch Holders & Cable Needles
Stitch holders come in different sizes, ranging from just a few inches long to nearly a foot. They’re a staple of the yarn shop tools display, and so helpful to use once you start knitting garments like sweaters. They are designed to do exactly what you might think – hold stitches aside, securely, for a portion of your project. (If you needed to put the whole piece aside for a short while, you would simply leave it on the needles).
