Knitter's Pride Cubics Double Pointed Needles 6"

$9.49 Each

This item is out of stock or you are ordering more items than currently in stock.

Knitter's Pride Cubics Double Pointed Needles have a cuboid shape in the body of the needle that gradually gives way to perfectly tapered birch wood 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 – no roll-aways! The densified, laminated wood is rich in appearance, yet it is also lightweight, strong, flexible, and warm to the touch. Needle size is measured diagonally and these needles fits into standard needle sizers just like round needles. Set of 5 needles. Also available in 8” length.

I recently purchased these needles in size 1 for socks. They are wonderful. I have used the metal cubic needles in the past and have found them to irritate my fingers. I have also used regular bamboo needles which bend and break.
So far, these are the best needles I have found. Love them!!!

I love the cubical shape of these DPNs, as well as all of the Cubics line. They are perfect in so many ways. It's absolutely wrong to think that the sizes don't correspond to the same sizes in round knitting needles. When I was asking for them in an LYS, the store clerk said they didn't carry them because "their square shape changes your gauge." Nonsense! You'll absolutely love knitting with them. The points are perfect, their shape reduces hand fatigue because of how comfortable they are to grip, they've got good slip but not too much, they're sturdy and warm in the hand. Unfortunately, I had to significantly ding them for one serious design flaw: the size number is printed on them, not engraved, so with time and much use they will wear off, and you'll have no way of knowing what size your needles are. As far as I know, there aren't any needle gauges that have square holes, so you won't be able to size them in round-holed needle gauges. If Knitter's Pride doesn't change the way they mark their needles, they should at least provide square-holed needle gauges with your purchase. I'm at the level in my knitting that I can pretty well guess what size the needle is, and I'm always checking my gauge before a project by knitting a swatch anyway, but I also like to keep good notes on my completed projects. Now my notes have things like, "size 8 I think?"

      I found my "Goldilocks" needles!!

      I am new to knitting, and have become addicted to socks! To that end, I've been trying different dpns. I ordered and used the Nova Platina cubics in the 5", and liked them, but thought I'd try these as well. I LOVE them!! I've found my Goldilocks needles!!! The cubics design is very easy for me to hold, and my stitches are consistent as well as beautiful. The wooden cubics aren't quite as slippery as the steel ones, and for me that is a BIG plus. I've now ordered them in three sizes, and truly enjoy picking them up to work with. Because of this, I find I'm knitting more quickly and for longer periods of time, which means my projects are being completed more quickly!!!!

          One of these needles snapped in half within the first week of use. Happened when stored in a project bag, within a larger canvas bag. No undue stress.

          These are especially great for knitting socks and other small items in the round. The stitches don't twist or fall off the ends of the needles.

          I like the way these needles move through yarn. I also think you get a more even knitting with these "strange" shaped needles.
