    I love that the needles have a long slender point which vastly facilitates getting into your stitches! Easy to use, makes knitting so much easier!

    Comments about 16"" Circular Needles:

    The needle pulled apart a little at the join The yarn kept catching in the space and it was very difficult to slide the stitches along.

    Comments about 16"" Circular Needles:

    I was making a hat, 190 stitches, and didn't have a size 4, 16-inch circular needle. I knitted 9 rows and the cord disconnected from the needle. I own many of this brand of circular needles, most bought when I worked at a yarn store in the 1980s, and none of those have broken. The new ones may be made more cheaply, but I'll steer clear of this brand from now on. I'm working on the assumption that the materials have changed (circular needles 30 years old work great, while the new one barely lasted 2 days).

      Comments about 16"" Circular Needles:

      I like the little bend in the needles because it makes them easier to manipulate with the short cord. However, I had a hard time with them because the place where the one of the needles joined the cord was not smooth. My yarn kept getting caught at that place and I had to continually stop knitting and yank the yarn up over it.
