These Neko curved knitting needles are brand new and amazing for circular knitting. These knitting needles are somewhere between regular double pointed needles and magic loop with circular needles. These new needles are getting rave reviews from our in-store customers and online customers alike. The design allows you prevent losing stitches off the end of the needles like double points. They also help to the laddering effect you can sometimes get with Magic Loop style knitting. Neko needles are available in various styles respectively for socks, hats in different lengths.
