Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set

Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set includes 5 pairs of 4.5" tips in US sizes 2.5, 3, 4, 5, and 6. The 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. This set also includes 2 cables (one each of 24" and 32"), 4 end caps, 2 cable keys, and a set of needle size ID tags, all organized in a fabric zippered case. It's best to tighten your needles by holding the base. Click here to see how it's done.

    I was very anxious to try carbon fiber needles. My DH is a pilot and yaps about "how light weight, how strong, how versatile...." carbon fiber is. But the first carbon fiber needles were super expensive. The Knitters Pride Karbonz are a perfect solution for me. Although I tend to like stiletto tips on my needles, the Karbonz needles have something between a middi tip and a stiletto and I'm finding them very comfortable to use. When they arrived I immediately switched out the Knit Picks I had been using in my Summer Braids pattern Cardigan. They are sailing along like dream needles. And although I'm a pretty consistent knitter I can see that with these needles my stitches look almost perfect in proportion and size compared to the section knitted with my Knit Picks. Hmmmm....what to do? RIBBET or carry on? Whatever, I am delighted with these.

    I love the interchangeable needles I have from this manufacturer, so I was so excited when the Karbonz were becoming interchangeable! I was very disappointed upon receiving this set as the tips were blunt, inconsistent, and tapers short(compared to the other products produced by Knitter's Pride). I do twisted stitches, through the back loop, and these tips just won't cut it. I was so excited to get them only to find that the quality and workmanship has gone down hill(spaces in between joins). Will return them.

        I bought these from a friend's recommendation, and I am really pleased with them. I plan to buy the next set as well. They feel good in your hands, and the yarn slides easily with nice sharp tips.

          The cables are very flexible and easy to use when knitting socks 2 at a time on one needle. The needles are comfortable to hold and knit with, and easy to join with the cables.

            The Best Needles I've Ever Used

            Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set:

            I love to knit two-at-a-time Magic Loop socks, and I have tried a variety of circular needles from many vendors, including Knitter's Pride (Dreamz, Cubics, Nova Cubics, and Karbonz).

            By far, the best ones for me have been Knitter's Pride Karbonz. The tips are slick, like the Nova needles, but the carbon fiber keeps a nice grip on the yarn, like the Dreamz. I also have a strong grip when knitting and the Karbonz can handle it, especially in the smaller sizes (I've snapped many a wooden and bamboo needle in the past when knitting socks). I just had to have the starter set, and I'm wishing I had just bought the deluxe set because I want the larger needle sizes, as well.

            Definitely give Karbonz needles a try. I know they're pricey, but honestly, you do get what you pay for: high quality knitting needles that go above and beyond any other out there.

              Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set:

              I started a shawl with a cheap circular needle I had on hand. I had trouble getting the work to slide past the joins. Then the Karbonz needles arrived so I switched over to the Karbonz and the difference was remarkable! No more slowdowns while I gently pushed the knit fabric along onto the needle... I could just concentrate on the pattern and on speed.
              Don't let the reasonable price fool you, this is a high quality item.

                  I'm a Marathon Knitter I call my self. I have 4 girls (women) and knit for them. Have knitted lots of baby clothes also. I find the Karbonz needles are very strong and love the metal tip. I love that it comes in the smaller sizes since I never knit with needles higher than an size 8 and like needles size 7 and under. Can't think any I don't like.

                    I love these needles because they come in sizes smaller than US4 and all of them have the needle size on the needle itself. The case is beautiful and functional and the black cables are very attractive. My only complaint is that the tips are not very sharp, especially in comparison to my other interchangeable set by the same manufacturer. I think these will get a lot of use!

                        I like that the join hasn't even loosened and that the cables are flexible. The tips are sharp and there is no "sticking" where the metal tips are joined.
