My invention relates to wool-ball clips, an ob- ‘
ject of the invention being to provide a conspicu
ously simple and inexpensive device intended to
be inserted or woven beneath a few ‘of the exter
nal turns of the strand forming a ball of knitting
wool, for the purpose of conveniently suspending _
the same from the end-length of the said strand -
union 5 with the needle portion I, is of substan
tially greater breadth than the said needle por
tion. However, it will also be seenthat the edge
8 of the region 1 which projects beyond the 'nee
dle portion, converges at 9 towards the opposite
edge III, which edge is preferably parallel with
the needle portion 1.
