The invention relates 'to improvements in
holders and methods for knitting, crocheting
and analogous purposes, the primary object be
ing to provide a simple, ef?cient and economical
UK ly produced holder of the character indicated by
means of which two strands may be so united in
the knitting or crocheting operation as to pro
duce various or variegated patterns.
Another object of the invention is'the provi
10 sion of an improved holder of the character in
dicated so‘ constructed and arranged as to facil
itate packing and transportation of the same.
Another object of the invention is the provi
sion of an improved method of associating
strands for use in knitting, crocheting and anal
ogous purposes.
'
Other objects will appear hereinafter.
The invention consists in the combinations
and arrangements of parts hereinafter described
and claimed.

In use and in operation a ball of yarn I1 is
I4, under the partition I3, the strand I8 protrud
ing upwardly and passed through the passage
way 20 of the supply member I9-2I, and
through the passage-way 23 of the guide 22.
Then the supply member is placed in position in
the holder on top of the partition I3 and the"
strand 2I from the supply member I9-—2I is
wrapped about the strand I8 as best shown in
Fig. 4. Owing to the fact that the supply mem
ber I9 is thus held stationary the strand 2| will 30'
be wrapped helically around the strand I8 in its
natural and untwisted condition so that it will
in no wise interfere with the use of the combined

strands in subsequent knitting or crocheting
operations, and by withdrawing the strand 2|

withdrawal or unwinding of the strand 2I from
the supply member I9 will cause the strand 2I

within the box I0. When the holder is in use,
the supply member I9--2I is reversed in position‘
as indicated in Figs. 3, 4, and 5 so as to protrude
from the top of the box Ill and permit the pas
sage of the strand I8 upwardly therethrough. 10
The truncated cone I9 is preferably made of
heavy card-board or the like and has its upper
end 22 drawn inwardly as shown to form a guide
having a relatively small central guide passage
way 23 adapted to guide the strand I8 during its
removal from the ball I1. The guide end 22 is
purchased and placed in the lower compartment
The invention will be best understood by refer

Fig. 2, the supply member I9-2I is of such a
shape that its smaller end will ?t as indicated

partition I3 dividing the box into lower and
_ upper compartments I4 and I5, said partition be
mg provided with a central opening I6, as
shown; 'Thecompartment'ld is of a size and
50 shape to receive a ball of yarn i‘! so that a strand
of the same I8 emanating therefrom may read

through the partition I3.
Arranged in the compartment I5 is a strand

cone having a hollow interior to form a central
passage-way 2B. A strand of yarn 2| which
may, as indicated, be of much smaller size than
the strand I8 is wound as indicated on the pe
60 riphery of the supply member I9 so as to main

less tightly around the strand I8 during the
normal knitting operation. The effect of this
will be to incorporate the strand 2I into the v
knitting by automatically twisting it about the
strand I8 thus producing a variety of effects in
the ?nished fabric. The same effect will of
course be produced in crocheting or other weav
ing operations using the double strand thus pro
vided. In this way a simple and e?ective holder
is provided which will automatically twist one
strand around the other in the course of with
drawal thereof from their respective supply
members.
