The Straight Pin Shawl Stick is a minimalist form of exceptional function. The beauty of this simple shawl stick is the sheer quantity of styling real estate it has the capacity to control. What other styling tool controls a full four inches of knitwear with one simple tool?
The trick with shawl sticks is to thread them in and out of the knitwear so that the wiggles we design into these tools can do their job - of grabbing onto the fabric and holding your styling in place through tension and friction.
The Straight Pin is not only just pure elegance and simplicity, it's a cheeky visual bit of fun. The intermittent glint of metal you see when you thread this stick through your knitwear looks a bit like a running stitch. The sewing reference is evoked on knitwear.
