Needle Art Tools & Accessories FAQs

How to use a stitch marker

Stitch markers come in the form of split rings or may be similar to safety pins which lock into place. They're used to keep track of stitch increases, decreases, complex patterns and are designed to be easily removed and repositioned on your knitting or crochet work. To use, simply slip the marker into the required position to keep track of where you're at in your knitting or crochet pattern.

What is a French knitter?

A French knitter is a handy device, and may also be referred to as a knitting nancy or a spool knitter. They're used to create narrow tubes of knitted braids and consist of a series of pins atop a hollow tube of either plastic or wood. You can use a French knitter to create matching drawstrings for your knitting projects, headbands, coasters, necklaces and more - and are a great way to introduce kids and beginners to the art of knitting!

How to use a pom pom maker

There are many ways to make your own pom poms, and using a specialised pom pom making tool is one of the easiest! Your pom pom maker will come with its own set of instructions, so make sure to follow them carefully. They typically consist of two halves around which you wind your chosen yarn. Once the halves of the maker are joined, snip along the edge of the maker and tightly tie a length of yarn to secure the cut lengths.
