Lacis - Portuguese Knitting Pins, 2 pack - Silver


Used in Portuguese knitting style to control tension. Package contains two knitting pins. Made in USA.

When using the Portuguese knitting technique, the working yarn is wrapped around a finger on the right hand, and then strung through a pin fastened to the knitter's left shoulder, and then to the piece being knitted. It's a smooth technique involving only a small movement of the left thumb to wrap the yarn around the needle for the next stitch. This style can be of great help to those who can no longer knit English or Continental style due to arthritis, joint pain, or injuries to their hands. It may also be a way for the blind or visually impaired to knit because the working yarn stays put and you can always find it easily.
