Makers' Minute - Neko Double Pointed Needles
These Neko Double Pointed Knitting Needles will blow your mind! Learn why these ground breaking DPNs are the perfect match for all your small circumference knitting in the round needs!
Welcome to the new Wednesday home of Your Maker’s Minute. As always, I’m Katie, and today we’re going to be talking about these super cool Neko thumb-pointed needles. They’re bent?
Unlike traditional double-pointed needle where it’s usually a set of five, small, straight needles, this is a set of three, longer, curved needles.
Are you more of a visual person? Not to worry. The back of the packaging has all the needles in action to demonstrate just how to use them. These needles are great for anything you need to in the round that’s small circumference. So, hats, socks, sleeves, small cowls, perfect.
This actually makes a circle. So while four double-pointed needles, or even three double-pointed needles will make a circular fabric, this is actually entirely circular, causing less stress on the fabric over-all. It’s also really easy to keep track of which needle you need to knit off of, because there’s only one needle where the yarn is knot. Now as we know, you always want to knit to where the yarn is knot. Neko, the name of the company, is actually a Japanese word for cat. Thanks college!
These needles are in a large range of sizes; from small for socks, and large for bulky hats and cowls, and even extra-long, just for those projects that call for a few extra stitches.
