Sandnes Garn Large stitch cords are made of soft and hollow plastic. They are excellent when, for example, knitting from top down and leaving the sleeve stitches on hold while you finish knitting the body. Since the wire is hollow, it is easy to attach onto the tip of the knitting needle and pull the stitches over onto the cord. You can tie the cord so that the stitches do not fall off. Attach the tip of the knitting needle to the cord and pull the stitches back to the knitting needle when you are ready to knit the sleeves. Each package contains 12 cords in different colors. Each cord is 100 cm long and 3 mm diameter, best suited for needles 5-10 mm.
