How to Make a Wire Safety Pin Style Shawl Pin

By on Thursday, January 02, 2014 2 Comments

The sweaters and shawls are piling on now that the temperature is dipping sharply.  Cheer yourself or a knitter or crochet fan you know with a wire wrapped beaded shawl pin.  The style is similar to a large kilt pin which resembles a safety pin.



This tutorial is by Shala Kerrigan over at Bella Online.  As you can see, the pointy end is blunt so unless you sharpen it, this pin is best for open work as in knitted or crochet garments.

If you can't do that much wire work, you can still do some light bead and wire work to embellish a ready made kilt pin.

  1. Pearl I just wanted to bring to your attention that almost all these tutorials links that you post are same page links which you increase the bounce rate of your page. you can convert them to open as new page and you are likely to get more comments and lesser BR. pls ignore if it was a conscious decision

  2. You are absolutely right, Divya. I forgot to check the open to new page boxes. Trying to remember!

    Commenting is a very reciprocal activity and I have to admit time constraints with writing a daily blog don't allow me to comment on other blogs as much as I would like.
