HiyaHiya’s Octopus Snips measure only 48 mm long when closed and come with an attached key chain and cap to keep the snips safe.



HiyaHiya’s original Octopus Snips are handy little tools which measure only 48 mm long when closed and come with an attached key chain and cap to keep the snips safe. They are spring loaded to make snipping easier. They’re also very sharp so that your yarn cuts right through. Snip away all day and minimize hand fatigue. Perfect to tuck into your notions pouch!

If you’re new to knitting or crochet, snips are a little different to scissors or shears. Scissors and shears both have finger holes to make it easier to cut larger things. Because snips are meant to just snip a piece of thread or yarn, they have no finger holes. Instead, you squeeze them at the blades in order to snip the thread or yarn at hand.

Why We Love HiyaHiya Octopus Snips

Octopus snips are great because of the following features:

  • Removable head protects and holds the stainless steel blades
  • Keychain attached to keep your snips close to hand
  • Measures only 5cm when closed making them perfect for travel – they can fly on most planes
  • Because they have rounded tips and a cover, if they’re loose in your bag you won’t stab yourself
  • The ball chain loop means you can clip it onto a zipper pull, a little loop or hang it off a necklace
  • They are absolutely adorable!
  • They come in loads of different colours!

We also offer HiyaHiya Sleepy Kitty snips, Puppy snips and Kitty snips!

About Hiyahiya

Shanghai knitter and pattern designer Qianer Huang founded HiyaHiya. She struggled to find the tools that met her exacting standards. With the help of her father and brother, both engineers, they were able to make the world’s first interchangeable straight needle. Since that first design, they have worked to create more tools that combine innovation with quality and comfort.
