Knitter's Pride Karbonz 6" Double Pointed Needle Set

Knitter's Pride Karbonz 6" Double Pointed Needle Set includes needles in US sizes 0, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, and 3. Karbonz needles have the spectacular flex and tensile strength of carbon fiber, the same material used in aerospace engineering, with a warm feel like wood.

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

      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!

          I am currently making socks, and these Karbonz needles are great. The points are good for picking up stitches, and give me good even tension.

              Great for knitting socks, which I love to do. The short needles are not a problem, which I thought they would be. Five needles are wonderful. The slim points make it easy to pick up the stitches. Well worth the money. Love them.

                    My hands have been hurting after a few hours of knitting with bamboo needles, but not with these! I can knit for hours. Its like knitting with silk!

                      I use these needles for tight spaces ie socks, gloves, and hats. They are great and don't snap/ break like bamboo needles.
                      I just would like a set in larger sizee!

                        These are by far my favorite sock DPN's. The flex, the pointed ends and the drag of the yarn on the surface is by far beyond any other DPN I have used in the past.
