The Knitting Barber Cords - A Must-Have for all Knitters

We are thrilled to introduce our latest product: the Knitting Barber cords! Crafted in Vaasa, Finland, these cords come from the creative genius of a Barber by day and a passionate Knitter by night. Launched in 2020 by the remarkable Jojo Stolpe, the Knitting Barber began as a modest venture to showcase her unique knitting patterns, enhance her lectures, and refine her personal knitting projects.

Transform your knitting experience with these revolutionary small silicone cords! Simply glide them onto your knitting needle tips, and voilà, easily transfer your stitches onto the cord. This innovation lets you effortlessly spread your stitches, enabling you to precisely fit and measure your creations. Also, great for holding your sleeve stitches while working in the round. Watch this YouTube video for how to use the cords.


I opted for the longer cord to finish my top-down sweater, and it was a game-changer! Seamlessly connecting my circular knitting needles, it enabled me to try on my garment and check if the length matched my vision. What an incredible product! Plus, the cord stayed securely attached to the needles without a hitch.

The Knitting Barber cords also work great when working a provisional cast on, as shown in this YouTube Video.

The thin cords are made of silicone and come in a set of three cords, stored nicely in a circular tin. Two of the cords measure 75 cm (30 inches) and one measures 150 cm (60 inches).

Suitable for any 2.25 mm to 7 mm knitting needles, but works best with pointier needles rather than dull needle tips.

A big thank you to Linda from Inside Northampton Wools for her great video "Using the Knitting Barber Cords", and Kimberly McAlindin of Knit a Rainbow for her video "How to Provisionally Cast on with Barber Cords".

Happy Knitting !   Yvonne
