Product Review: Knitter’s Pride Magnetic Knitter’s Necklace Kit

The Knitter’s Pride Magnetic Knitter’s Necklace Kit is a game changer for frustrated cable knitters.

Those who listen to the podcast are aware that I’ve knit the Sencila Cowl twice. The first time didn’t go so well (because “gauge is not critical is a lie), but I loved the pattern, so I tried again.

Between the first and second attempts, Knitter’s Pride sent me one of their Magnetic Knitter’s Necklace kits, and I put it to work as I knit the second iteration.

The first time I knit Sencilla, I felt like a forgetful infomercial actress every time I needed to use my cable hook. That beast was elusive! I found between the cushions of the couch, in a fold of my jeans, in my knitting bag where it belonged–basically, no where I was looking. So, yeah, Knitter’s Pride, I would be more than happy to try anything that would keep me from having to go on a full-scale expedition every time I get to a cable row.

Fashion forward and practical, the Knitter’s Pride Magnetic Knitter’s Necklace Kit is a huge help for knitters!

Sencila, Take Two

The magnetic knitter’s necklace saved me so much time on the second Sencila. I’d make my cable and plunk the cable hook back to the necklace right away. I didn’t have to hunt it out once. No angst. No frustration. Just knitting. It was a lovely experience.

Performance

The magnet is strong. The pieces really stay in place. One day, I got up and did chores for a half hour before I remembered I had the necklace on, and everything was still there. Another day, I wore it on my walk; I went 2 miles and even jogged a few times as I crossed roads, and nothing fell off.

The necklace comes with its own notions, but any notions you already own that will attract to magnets will work, too, like this needle for weaving in ends.

I discovered that my tapestry needles will stick to it, too, so weaving in ends has gotten that much easier. Everything stays where I need it!

Notions Pack

The necklace comes with a pouch full of notions, including metal stitch markers and three types of cable needles. It’s likely that your current cable needles are plastic or aluminum, so they won’t stick to the necklace. It’s very helpful to get everything you need with the necklace itself! And, if you need more, these accessories can be bought individually. So, if you do happen to lose something, you don’t have to buy a whole new necklace kit to replace it.

Plus, It Looks Nice!

My necklace is the Cherry Berry style, but they also have a Natural Hues option if you prefer the look of natural wood. The cord is made from vegan leather, and can adjust to hang close to your neck or just below the bust (depending on your height). I appreciate the flexible length, because it allows my to wear it at a length that works for the demands of my knitting and that day’s outfit.

How Do You Get Your Hands on One?

Many local yarn stores stock Knitter’s Pride needles and notions, so you can always look there. Or, if you’d like to have it sent right to your home, you can order one from Amazon.
