    Pony Pearl Double Pointed Needles

    Made of cellulose acetate, a wood-based plastic that feels warm to the touch, Pony Pearl needles have a bit of flex, come in wonderful colors, and are a joy to work with. Each set includes 5 needles which are 6" long.

    Pony Pearl categorizes their needles into US sizes that are not entirely accurate. We have listed the correct US conversions in the sizes below.

      I love the Pony Pearl DPNs. I was hesitant to try them at first because I generally have not been too fond of plastic needles in the past. But these are great - warm with a bit of flex & just enough "stickiness" to keep stitches from flying off - a big plus when knitting socks. I also like the blunt tips because one of my favorite sock yarns is quite splitty. And they are virtually indestructible (I cannot count the number of wooden & casein needles that have snapped during use & I don't think I am particularly hard on needles). And I don't think you can beat the price. I also love that they come in different colors for different sizes. Otherwise, it is surprisingly easy to mix up a 2.25 mm needle with a 2.5 mm needle. Overall, especially considering price & durability, these are by far my favorite DPNs.

      I ordered these DPNs because I was in the mood to try something a little different, and I'm a sucker for brightly colored things. These are certainly "different" from my other needles, unfortunately, not in a way that was helpful.

      First off, the size 3 I ordered was a cheap looking opaque white. Not colorful at all. Somewhat disappointing. But I can deal. What I could not deal with was how HEAVY these needles were. I don't think it's the plastic itself that is weighty, it's whatever material is at the core of these to reinforce them that makes them so heavy. I understand that you'd want a durable needle, and plastic is prone to bending, but these are almost unusable. The weight of the other three needles hanging unused would pull on my knitting so badly that it was impossible not to have unsightly distortions and ladders (and I NEVER get ladders).

      They're quite sticky, which can be useful with certain fibers. I can appreciate a little bit of drag. But I won't be buying these in any more sizes. It just goes to show...sometimes you're better off just sticking with what you know you like!

            I really like the way these needles feel in my hands. They are not too slippery for the yarn and they are a bit flexible which is also easier on the hands. Really enjoy using these and will be buying more.

              I feel like I'm really griping up a storm on this review...but hey, you asked!

              I have to say, I've been extremely disappointed with how long it takes my orders to be processed and shipped. Also, after I place the order, I don't receive any other notification...nothing to indicate when it has been shipped, or if a particular item is on backorder, zip, nada...I have to take it upon myself to log in to my account and track the order that way, and initiate my own inquiries when I see "partially shipped" orders on my account. It's very...discouraging. I often spend my money elsewhere for this reason alone.

                  Comments about Pony Pearl Double Pointed Needles:

                  I've been using the size seven (7) Pony DPNs to learn how to make socks, and they're a nice introduction to using DPNs. They're not slick like metal needles, so if you're an expert knitter, don't buy them expecting your stitches to fly right off--they don't. In fact, sometimes I have to kind of wrestle with them, but that's a good aspect for a beginning DPN user to deal with, since stitches aren't falling off of the needles left and right.

                  I do wish that the ends were just a little bit more pointy, since sometimes it's a little hard to open up a stitch with ends that aren't tapered enough. Maybe Pony could work on that for future incarnations of this product? Otherwise, I'm more or less happy with these needles.

                  A friend of mine introduced me to the Pearls dpn by Pony and I fell in love with them right away. I have bought several sizes. What is neat about them is that they are color coded and I have them all stored in a canister that I labeled with the size/color of each needle. All I have to do is reach for the right color.

                  These needles are the best! The wood/plastic provides a much smoother surface than traditional bamboo or rosewood needles and they stay smooth. Lightweight, unlike most metal needles. I'm a big addi user and I love these just as much.
