Smooth and colorful. Useful for fixing knitted stitches temporarily when putting on a sleeve or pocket. The tip is rounded to avoid splitting the yarn. The large pin head and longer shaft prevent the pin from slipping through larger stitches. Due to the length of the tapered tip, a tight fit is possible for any stitch size. By removing the box header and 3 closure flaps (along the perforated line), the box can be used to store the pins.
