A knitting belt allows you to knit faster and with less stress on the hands and wrists. It also makes Fair Isle and intarsia knitting less fussy because you have more control over the yarn without holding the right needle.

Knitting belts allow people with arthritis, tendinitis, repetitive thumb injuries and other disabilities to knit more easily, because gripping a knitting needle can be painful. I started using a knitting belt and long double-pointed needles (DPNs) because I have thumb tendinitis. I wanted to tackle some circular knitting projects that I wouldn’t have been able to do with traditional circular needles.

For hundreds of years, knitters used knitting belts to facilitate their knitting, and much of their knitting was done when walking from place to place. Many of the great masterpiece knitting projects such as Shetland wedding ring lace shawls, Aran sweaters, and British fishermans’ ganseys were traditionally knit using a knitting belt and/or a knitting sheath.


* I stuff the leather belts with a black nylon netting, like what wedding veils are made of. You can get large needles through the netting, but you may need to work at the netting just a little at first to make a "channel" through it. It does not degrade over time, and you can shift it around a bit and modify the angle of the needle just as well as the traditional horsehair stuffing.

* All knitting belts come with one extension strap so you can wear the pouch at your thigh, waist or hip. If you need a second strap, please let me know, and I'll send a second extension strap free of charge!

* Also included is a power-loading tool to reduce strain when holding a needle-full of work.

* Just a reminder... leather is a highly variable product. If you'd like for me to take a photo of your actual product, please let me know.

* If you don't see what you need, or if the ordering process isn't working, please let me know what you'd like via convo, and I'll put together a custom invoice for you.

** Please note: long double-pointed needles (DPNs) are sold separately.


Please see my website, www.knitting-belts.com to view videos. There is also a detailed explanation on how to use the knitting belt!

If there's something wrong with the knitting belt, or if the stitching comes undone for any reason (though that's never happened), I'll offer a free replacement upon return of the original. Your happiness is important to me!

Very well made. After consulting the instructions provided by shop owner on her website I was able to convert from my previous style of knitting to Knitting with the belt. I’m enjoying experimenting with the belt in different locations I order to establish my own “best” style. Experience this traditional way of Knitting with this fine leather belt,
