Knitter's Pride Nova Cubics Special Interchangeable Circular Needle Tips
The Knitter's Pride Nova Cubics Special Interchangeable Circular Needle Tips have a cuboid shape that gradually gives way to perfectly tapered points. The ergonomic shape is comfortable to hold, lessens the need to grip tightly, and yields uniform stitch formation. The special shape also means that these needles stay put when not in use. Engineered from hollow brass pipes and plated with high quality nickel, the exceptionally smooth surface enables stitches to move quickly and with no resistance. Needle size is measured diagonally and these needles fit into standard needle sizers just like round needles. These special tips are shorter than the standard tips, especially designed to produce circulars in 16” lengths when combined with the 16" cable.
Comments about Knitter's Pride Nova Cubics Special Interchangeable Circular Needle Tips:
I love using the cubic square needles. But the smaller special size needles (for 16 inch cables) can break more easily under certain tensions of the knitter and the type of yarn and pattern. I actually broke one while knitting a headband on 16 inch cables and now I am leery of using them on headbands when the size is small and you have to stretch to knit the round. These have the cubic shape but because they are metal, they are more durable. They also have nice sharp tips.
