Coiless Pins - Locking Stitch Markers

Coiless pins (aka open-coil markers, pear-shaped pins, gourd pins, and safety pin bails) can be used for a variety of craft projects, general household use, and, of course, for knitting & crochet. Use as regular safety pins, to attach hang tags, or to hold small objects. Since they are coil-free, they work well as locking stitch markers or small needlework stitch holders.

Pins measure 22x10mm (~~.87x.39"). Sold in sets of 20 pins, each set is packaged in a poly storage jar, perfect for keeping the pins safe and accessible. The Colorful and Multi Metallic sets have 4 each of 5 colors; the silver and gold sets are 20 each of the single color. Retail price is $3.75/set.
