5mm Double Pointed Needles (Set of Four)
Got a pattern that asks you to work in the round? Double pointed needles are an excellent place to start and these work great with aran weight yarns.
Double pointed needles make decreasing and working with a small number of stitches a breeze so you can easily knit up super chunky hats and mittens in no time at all.
If you find the quantity of needles a little intimidating, don’t fear! Check out our ‘How To Knit Tutorials’ which you can find in the footer.
5mm Double Pointed Needles
This set of four 5mm double pointed needles are perfect for working with aran weight yarns.
Each needle measures at 20cm long and tapers to a neat point at either end. Double pointed needles are great for working in the round, particularly for smaller pieces like sleeves and decreases.
Bamboo knitting needles make a great needle choice for beginner knitters. They are incredibly lightweight and easy to use which makes them comfortable to knit with. They’re also warm to the touch, unlike plastic or metal which can get rather cool and as such are recommended for arthritis sufferers.
Plus, the bamboo has just the right amount of grip to hold your stitches in place, particularly if you are working with more slippery fibres like cotton, so you can knit without worrying about dropping any!
Oh, and don’t forget they’re a super eco friendly and non-allergenic alternative to their plastic and metal counterparts.
