Knitting Needles: Knitting Needle Sets & Circular Knitting Needles
Paradise Fibers is committed to becoming your one stop shop for all your knitting, crocheting, felting, weaving, and spinning needs. The first thing any knitter needs other than a pattern and a skein of yarn is a knitting needle set. When you are just beginning to learn how to knit, you may think one knitting needle is the same as any other. It doesn’t take more than a glance in a few books to see you have a choice between bamboo circular knitting needles or a metal circular knitting needle set among others. A set can include needles made of nearly any material imaginable including rosewood knitting needles.
You might assume from the patterns you plan to follow that you have no need for circular knitting needles. When deciding on which needles to buy, reconsider all your options for needles. Circular needles are a fun option to use on larger flat projects because they hold more yarn than a straight knitting needle. Other options may include adding Addi interchangeable knitting needles to your knitting kit. Take time to examine a variety of needles. Circular needle kits are available with a detachable cord that allows interchangeable knitting needles to be added for different projects. Once you learn how to knit on a circular knitting needle, you may decide that a it is your first choice for a large range of projects. Interchangeable circular knitting needles are available from several manufacturers. Some include several cords of various lengths to allow even more options when working on large projects. As with other knitting needles, circular needles may not be appropriate for all projects. Circular knitting needles are available in sizes ranging from three to 15 and for those with interchangeable needles you can find cord sizes from 11 to 40 inches based on the circumference of your finished project. A good pattern should recommend both the size of the needles and the length of cord.
We recommend purchasing a quality needle set when you are ready to purchase needles. A quality set such as the Addi interchangeable knitting needles will perform smoothly and last much longer than a lower quality brand. This set also allows you to purchase replacement tips later. A quality circular knitting needle set will give you many more options once you learn to use them properly. With interchangeable needles that may be used with or without a cord, your knitting options are endless. At Paradise Fibers, we can recommend a good quality needle set. A knitting needle set such as bamboo circular knitting needles or beautiful rosewood knitting needles are often a favorite choice when working with fine fibers that tend to slip easily.
