Double Pointed Needles

Double pointed knitting needles


Double pointed needles are straight needles with points on both ends. They may be made of metal, wood, bamboo or plastic and come in a variety of lengths.

Double pointed needles are most commonly used when knitting items in the round that have a small circumference, such as socks. They are also used for techniques that use few stitches (as a matter of comfort), and techniques that use few stitches and require moving stitches from one end of the needle to the other, such as knitting i-cord.
