Say hello to these wonderful and innovative TKB Cords and say goodbye to waste yarn! Designed and handmade by Jojo (aka The Knitting Barber) in Vasa Finland, these hollow silicon cords are quick and easy to use, and have taken the knitting world by storm!
These practical and versatile cords can be used in many situations:
- When stitches are placed on hold, e.g. sleeves, pockets, shoulders, collars etc
- To hold stitches for provisional cast on
- To lengthen your cable and secure your stitches when trying on a garment.
- Plus loads more!
How do they work? ...Simply firmly press the open end of the TKB cable on to the tip of your needle and slide the stitches to be placed on hold onto the TKB cord. Then remove your needle and tie the ends of the TKB cord to secure...When you're ready to place your stitches back onto your needles it takes seconds to reverse the process - untie your TKB cord, firmly attach your TKB cord to the tip of your working needle and slide your live stitches back onto your needles. Remove the cord from your needle and you're ready to knit!

The Knitting Barber Story
Jojo's day-to-day job is as a barber and she works her knitting business making TKB products in the evenings and nights. Jojo also works as a knitting teacher and pattern designer.
Jojo says: “This is my own one-woman-company and I love it, even if it means that I am bosslady as well as cleaning lady and everything in between. In the future I hope to grow the knitting part and work as a barber every other week and every other with this.
I make all the cord-sets myself by hand, so they are truly made in Finland.”
