Knitter's Pride Cubics Double Pointed Needles 8"

$15.09 Each

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 6” length.

I have been trying the "square" double pointed needles for my sock knitting. I really like them...the feel in my hands and the fact that they don't roll. I have been using the Kollage METAL Square Double Pointed Needles, so I decided to try the Knitter's Pride WOODEN Cubic Double Pointed Needles. The Knitter's Pride needles feel very nice in my hands and have a really sharp point, making the knitting easy. However, I seem to be knitting much more loosely with the wooden needles than I do with metal needles, so I would try a size smaller wooden needles than I would for the metal needles. It also seems that the wooden needles are more delicate than the metal needles.....if you sat on the wooden needles you are quite likely to break them. Also, the wooden needles are not currently available in the small sizes (US 0-3) which I use most of the time.

great kniting

I would recomend them but caution that the needle size imprinted wears off immediately with use.

            I have been teaching my self to knit.I started 3 years ago at the age of 60, and my hands are a challenge every day. I though the knitters Pride cubic might help. But I love them, now I don't want to use my other DPNs.

                The Cubics work perfectly with KnitPicks interchangeable cables. I love that I don't have to have a special set of cables to use Cubics!

                    I have the Cubics interchangeable needle set and prefer this style of needle to the round ones. So it made sense to go with the Cubics when I was building my DPN collection.

                    Comments about Knitter's Pride Cubics Double Pointed Needles 8":

                    I particularly like the 16" circular needles. The ends are long enough to hold and the square shape seems less tiring on my hands. I've just started a pair of socks with the Double Points.
                    They are working great even if a tad longer than I would like them to be.

                    I needed to get used to using these needles, but it was not too difficult. It took a few rounds on the socks I was knitting to decide I like the needles. My mother and grandmother would have loved having these Cubics as an option because they had rheumatoid arthritis. I have it too, but not as severely. I soon will knitting a couple more pairs of socks and then I will try them out on fingerless gloves. I give Cubics an A+. And, I will be ordering other sizes.

                      Love these needles. By far the best double pointed needles ive used. The cubic shape adds additional comfort compared to regular needles (bamboo or metal. If you knit a lot, I would highly recommend these.

                      Also, yarn.com customer service is amazing. I had a question about my order, and received a friendly and prompt response within a day of my question submission.
