' ~ terns, it is common practice to employ two or more needles for the knitting operation and one or more other straight needles onto which cable The principal objects of the invention are di rected to the provision of a stitch holder for hand knitting which is constructed and arranged in a novel manner‘ so as to be adapted, among other purposes, for holding stitches in knitting stitch loops are slipped for holding them while certain knitting operations are being performed. The straight needles not only usually interfere cable-stitch patterns and other operations. 10 with the needles and ?ngers of the knitter so as With the foregoing and various other novel to amount to a source of annoyance but frequent features and advantages and other objects of ly the cable-stitch loops are lost from the needle my invention as will become more apparent as by the needle slipping through the loops or the description proceeds, the invention consists otherwise. in certain novel features of construction and in 15 The device of this invention is adapted to have the combination and arrangement of parts as cable-stitch loops slipped thereunto from the will be hereinafter more particularly pointed out knitting needles and being of less length than in the claim hereunto annexed and more fully the knitting needles does not interfere with the described} and referred to in connection with the knitting operation.
