Like their wooden Cubics cousins, the Knitter's Pride Nova Cubics Double Pointed Needles 8" have a cuboid shape that gradually gives way to perfectly tapered points. The ergonomic shape is comfortable to hold, lessens the need to grip tightly, and yields uniform stitch formation. The special shape also means that these needles stay put when not in use – no roll-aways! Engineered from hollow brass pipes and plated with high quality nickel, the exceptionally smooth surface enables stitches to move quickly and with no resistance. Needle size is measured diagonally and these needles fit into standard needle sizers just like round needles. Set of 5 needles. Also available in 5" and 6" lengths.

Too heavy for arthritic hands.

Comments about Knitter's Pride Nova Cubics Double Pointed Needles 8":
I bought this because it was a new concept and the comment was easy for grasping with arthritic hands. That part is true. I thought, "ok, I will try. Might be a good thing." The needles are easy to hold with the shape but they are so heavy. I find my fingers just can't sustain them. I spent a lot of money I wish I had spent on yarn. If I had known they were heavy, I would not have bought them. I do not know how to return them so I am stuck. My fault.
