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.

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!

        Comments about Pony Pearl Double Pointed Needles:

        I LOVE these needles and I am so glad they come in the small sock sizes! I have been binge knitting socks today and I have no hand pain. They are so comfortable to use and they have a bit of flex so they are not poking my hands. I am going to order a couple of more sets just in case they become hard to find which is always what happens to me. Highly recommended.

          Comments about Pony Pearl Double Pointed Needles:

          I am rough on double points plus I am very fussy about material of double points to avoid hand pain.

          These needles can take my abuse. I have bent/broken thin double points in other materials. these needles have a bit of give I find quite pleasant, but do not warp.

          They are very friendly to my hands. I can knit for hours with a minimum of hand pain.

          I like the security of a bit of stickiness in my needles. I find the material grips the yarn similar to bamboo.

          My only beef is lack of numbers on the needles. I keep them in their well worn paper package so I know what size I have.

          I own several sets and these are my go to double points. Thank you Webs for carrying these needles.

              I really like these dpns. They aren't slippery like metal, but they aren't sticky either and seem more sturdy than bamboo. The colors are useful as well when looking for the size you need (not to mention its fun to knit with colorful needles).

              I just lost one while knitting a hat while in the car and will be buying another set or two because they are just fantastic. Sock knitting, hat knitting, would probably work well for sleeves, gloves, and other things as well.
