Section 1: Materials
Most knitting needles are made from some variety of wood, metal, or plastic. Which material you prefer will depend on how you knit. This section begins with the qualities of wood knitting needles from how they feel in hand, and best uses. We then take you through the same pros and cons for both metal knitting needles and plastic knitting needles. We finish this section by combining all this information and adding personality profiles so you can pick the best knitting needles for you!
Section 2: Interchangeable Knitting Needles
Next we took a look at the plethora of interchangeable sets available. Since every interchangeable set has a more noticeable join than its fixed-length circular needle equivalent, our goal is to help you pick the join style that works best with your knitting style.
Section 3: Other Considerations
In this next section we get into the nitty gritty including knitting needle sizes, tips, and shapes. Learn about the situations where you might look for a sharp knitting needle and ones where you should go with blunt needle tips. Then, break down needle style with information on single-pointed vs. double-pointed needles, needle length, and even circular knitting needles.
Section 4: Guides
All this information leads to a one-page knitting guide to all the types of needles. This incredible resource provides you with brand, make, material, available as, and important notes, all together in one resource. We’ve followed this with another chart of knitting needle sizes. This knitting needle size chart lays out the metric, US, UK/Canadian, and even Japanese knitting needles sizes. You’ll definitely want to print these pages out to keep handy!
