Pin-spirations: Give a Twirl A Whirl

Tip Tuesday: Give a Twirl A Whirl-Crafty Flutterby Creations

For this week's Tip Tuesday I'm excited to share with you inspirations for styling with Twirl Shawl Pins. With a single shawl pin you can style the same accessory many different ways. The inspiration for these pins came from customer feedback. In the booth at events I often heard 'What if I loose the stick?' If given the opportunity I would give them a demo similar to the one in the Charmed Pin Tip Tuesday video linked here. So I developed this twirl style just in time to debut at Stitches Midwest 2016. Twirl pins are made of a thicker wire than the Charmed, Noteworthy and Round Pins; which makes them not quite as light. The Twirl Pins function best on hand knitted/crocheted items made in fingering-worsted weight yarn. They can also be worn on woven scarves. Scroll to the end for a video on how to give a twirl a whirl.
