This is a magnetic "pin" I designed for the Portuguese style of knitting. Once I put it together, I found dozens of other uses for it too. It can hold an ID badge, secure a scarf, hold pictures, notes, and potholders on the fridge, and most certainly other things I haven't thought of yet.

Portuguese knitting appeals to me because it is easier on your hands than continental or throwing methods. I began to have discomfort in my hands when I was knitting this fall and began researching alternative methods. I found great videos on youtube instructing the technique, but had a difficult time finding a knitting pin. I also have an aversion to pins poking through my clothes. Here is my solution! This pin is adorable and highly functional. The magnets are quite strong (they even connect through my sweaters and most of my jackets) and the hook is sturdy.

To use, simply place the button near your left shoulder and secure the backing beneath your shirt. The yarn is then secured on the hook and you are free to knit away!

The front measures 2 1/8" in diameter.

It is made from blue wool blend felt, hand embroidered with lemon yellow cotton floss, and affixed with a brass hook and a repurposed large white button center. Magnets are sewn into cotton cloth at the back.
