Knit Extension Cords - Stitch Holder Cords

Sale price$17.00

"The “Knit Extension Cords–Stitch Holder Cords” are genius. I am currently making a sweater for my grandson and have used the cords several times to “block as I go” to be sure the gauge remains correct. The cord stays securely on the knitting needles and it’s easy to slide the stitches from the needle onto the cord."

Handmade With Love

Our stitch markers and row counters are proudly handmade by our team just for you.

You’ve got a few options…

Ever tried on a sweater in progress?

Slide your stitches onto the LONGEST circular needle you own and hope it is long enough so you don’t lose your stitches.

Combine multiple cords together into a franken cord and hope they hold.

Take a needle and waste yarn and slip every single stitch off the needle and onto the yarn

But we have a better idea...

Try our new Knitting Extension Cords!

Slide the tip of these hollow tube cords onto the tip of your needle and you’ve instantly got a cord extension. The slightly stretchy silicone material grips the needles tightly, preventing it from accidentally slipping off (even if it’s only on the very tip).

Then simply slide as many stitches onto your extension cord as you need to be able to try on your work, then slide them back when you’re ready to knit again.

Try them on a work in progress

Use as a stitch holder for live stitches

Spread out your knitting for instagram worthy photos

Spread out your knitting to accurately check gauge

Set of Three 60″ cords sized to fit your needles perfectly

Light Blue – Small (up to US 4)

Teal – Medium (up to US 8)

Purple – Large (up to US 15)

Excellent product

I love these extension cords! They make it so easy to hold stitches, and I don’t have to worry about felting my yarn with waste yarn. I also love that it’s easier to try on a top down in the round sweater, simply by adding an extension cable to my needles, ensuring that my cable needle stays in place without loosing any stitches!

Smelly and sticky

The cords off gas a horrible smell … still smelly after two weeks. Even worse, when trying to transfer stitches to the cord the stitches stick. Worthless 😓

Useful and helpful

The cords are great. I wish they had come with the storage tin. The plastic zip bags are not going to last.

Jeri Cocas

These cords are extremely helpful in being able to try on my projects as I go.
