The Best Needles I've Ever Used

I love to knit two-at-a-time Magic Loop socks, and I have tried a variety of circular needles from many vendors, including Knitter's Pride (Dreamz, Cubics, Nova Cubics, and Karbonz). Read complete review

I love to knit two-at-a-time Magic Loop socks, and I have tried a variety of circular needles from many vendors, including Knitter's Pride (Dreamz, Cubics, Nova Cubics, and Karbonz).

By far, the best ones for me have been Knitter's Pride Karbonz. The tips are slick, like the Nova needles, but the carbon fiber keeps a nice grip on the yarn, like the Dreamz. I also have a strong grip when knitting and the Karbonz can handle it, especially in the smaller sizes (I've snapped many a wooden and bamboo needle in the past when knitting socks). I just had to have the starter set, and I'm wishing I had just bought the deluxe set because I want the larger needle sizes, as well.

Definitely give Karbonz needles a try. I know they're pricey, but honestly, you do get what you pay for: high quality knitting needles that go above and beyond any other out there.

I love the interchangeable needles I have from this manufacturer, so I was so excited when the Karbonz were becoming interchangeable! I was very disappointed upon receiving this set as the tips were blunt, inconsistent, and tapers short(compared to the other products produced by Knitter's Pride). I do twisted stitches, through the back loop, and these tips just won't cut it. I was so excited to get them only to find that the quality and workmanship has gone down hill(spaces in between joins). Will return them.

Comments about KNITTER'S PRIDE Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set:

These needles combine the ease of a metal point with a carbon shaft that is not slippery but not sticky either. Metal needles are too slippery for me and bamboo is too sticky. I love them and having a set with interchangeable cords is a delight. It was a birthday gift to myself!

Comments about KNITTER'S PRIDE Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set:

Have many types of needle....signature, addi, lykke,chiaogoo,hiya..... Haven't tried my Karbonz with lace weight yarn yet but so far I love these needles. Lightweight comfortable and the points are perfect, No issue with them coming apart! Also the cords from my Lykke fit the Karbonz and they are also black. Happy Knitter when you have great needles.

    Comments about KNITTER'S PRIDE Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set:

    This was my first set of interchangeable needles and I was so excited to use them. As others have noted, I was disappointed that the implements to tighten the tips don't fit into the holes, but have found that tightening them by spinning the needles works alright. Intermittently, one of the needles will untwist and start to come off of the cable, which is annoying but not catastrophic. The smoothness of the carbon fiber is lovely, and I think these needles are really pretty.

      The circular needles are fine and smooth. I move stitches smooth on needles. I am satisfied with circular needles. The cords are smooth and soft. I like the case.

        Used for 2 at a time socks and now for Pima cotton sweater -- doing sleeves in the round, 2 at a time. Not as slick as metal and not as slow as wood. Gives good control

          Love the Karbonz needles and was really excited to get tne interchangeable tips. The chords are AWFUL. I have tried everything to soften them up and have them be pliable and they just feel awful and make the whole experience bad. Even worse is the little piece to tighten the chord onto the needles doesn't even fit the hole! It won't go in at all!

              I have used Knit Picks interchangeable metal needles for years and started having problems with the cables coming apart. Time for a change! I have enjoyed knitting with the Knitters Pride Karbonz. No problems with the cables or needle tips. The tips are neither sharp or dull. They are like knitting with wood or bamboo needles. The yarn glides smoothly with a slight drag. I knit very quickly and I'm not sure Karbonz is for me. Karbonz would be wonderful for the beginner knitter! I purchased a size 7 interchangeable needle to round off the set.

                I do like that the tips are interchangeable. There is a small amount of difference in the between the brass tips and the carbon fiber that it grabs the yarn (so the yarn does not slide smoothly), and one of the tips will not tighten (the tip just spins, then will come lose while knitting). I am VARY disappointed with these needles.
