This JUL closure is designed with spirals. Spirals come up in native art forms across the globe and almost always represent eternity, sometimes prosperity. They can be associated with mortuary ceremonies or with birth - in both cases, they are marking the cyclic nature of life and the transformation from one state to another.
JUL Swirls Bridge Closure can close a sweater, shawl, cape or capelet, even shape the back of a sweater. The closure is a flexible component that can transform garments. The closure is a unique alternative to a shawl pin. It's a button for garments that don't have buttons or buttonholes.
To use JUL Swirls Bridge Closure, unscrew the backing and remove the back disk from the shank. Holding the front of the closure (on the Chicago Screw shank), work the shank gently in between the stitches of your knitwear from the front. Place the back disk of leather, smooth side out, over the Chicago Screw shank on the inside of the knitwear. Screw in the backing with your fingers to secure.
