My favorite needles!

Karbonz are my all-time favorite needles. I own several other sets of needles that now just sit in my knitting closet.

The tip is sharp but short, so when you knit complecated lace pattern, you will have problem. A gap between the nickle tip and the Karbonz body, so when you knit, the stitches will hiccups and may demage the delicated yarn. they label the size on the needle, but it comes off after 10 minutes of knitting. I also find the needles are heavy compare with Nova Platina.

    Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz 6" Double Pointed Needle Set:

    I finally used my Karbonz for knitting gloves. Love the feel of it. It is so smooth, but yet it holds the yarn enough where the stitches do not slip. It is soft to the touch on my hands. My new favorite go to needles. I loved it so much, I bought the regular sized circular set.

      I was unhappy with the bamboo available where I live. These needles were the perfect upgrade. They have a good amount of traction, while still being easy on my hands. I am very pleased with them.

              I use thesexclusively as my wood ones break too easily, and I use very small yarn and needles.

                Gave my 20 year-old granddaughter this set for Christmas as it was on her list. She loves them!
                She gives knitting lessons and works part-time in a knit shop and these are "tops" in her book.

                    Lightweight and seem very durable. The metal tips are great and seem to make my knitting faster, while the body of the needle keeps stitches from slipping off. I replaced my wood nDPN's with these,and wish I had done it sooner

                    Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz 6" Double Pointed Needle Set:

                    I have been ogling these for a long while. I have dozens of dpns -- both wood and aluminum -- and they're ok but the aluminum feels cold and the hardwood thin needles break so easily, while the bamboo ones grow tiny beards around the points. These seem to be the perfect combination: smoothest metal points on carbon needles that are slightly flexible and never feel cold. I can't wait to make more socks!
