Drop Stitch Latch Tool

Regular price $6.95
Drop Stitch Latch Tool. Have you ever dropped a stitch while knitting on your knitting machine and tried to re-latch the dropped stitches? If you have then I know you will appreciate this little fix it tool. You have probably found out to your chagrin that if you re-latch the dropped stitch from the side facing you on the machine that the repair will not be right,,,,, for when you  turn the garment around to the front side where you can see it, you will see you have a purl stitch where a knit stitch ought to be!!!!!. What a bummer that is......! With this tool you will be able to comfortably reach around behind the knitted piece and latch the dropped stitch from the knit side - (the side away from you when you are machine knitting) and it will look great because the picked up stitch will be from the knit (correct) side. You almost need to be a contortionist to do this with a standard latch tool! Our little tool lets you work comfortably from the blind side and latch up your dropped stitches so your garment looks great! Comes with a real wooden handle ; is approximately 5 inches long and  a 2 inch long needle shank (including the latch). This tool also works great if you want to do faux ribbing on most a plastic bed machine too (think Bond)! Wooden handle is supplied round. Comes complete with plastic needle guard.
