Circular Knitting Needles

By Sarai Salmog

Many beginner knitters and even experienced knitters have never tried circular knitting needles before, but knitters that use them generally love using them. I too love to use them! If you have never tried knitting with circular knitting needles, it is time to get into the loop of circular knitting, so to speak.

This article is just a spacklink of the enlightening facts and thoughts about circular knitting that I have learned. And as they say in the round- what goes around comes around. That's why I am going to pass my knowledge on to you little knitting sister.

Circular knitting needles are available in the same materials as all of the regular strait knitting needles. Common circular knitting needle materials include plastic, bamboo, metal, wood, rasin and the Addi turbo which are composed of nickel-plated aluminum.

The two types of circular knitting needle inventions are the permanently affixed type and the interchangeable type. I prefer the perminantly affixed type, but for traveling purposes nothing beats Denise interchangables.

Circular knitting needles come in a wide range of sizes, but they generally come in sizes ranging from 3 to 15, and the cord generally comes in sizes ranging from sixteen to sixty inches.

Circular knitting needles are similar to ordinary straight needles. The only difference between them in how they look is the flexible cord that joins the two pointed needle ends. But that one small difference makes a big difference as you will see.

When you knit with circular knitting needles and the weight of the stitches is well distributed on it, you can easily carry on large projects or work with heavy yarns because these needles hold the stitches in place.

In fact, many knitters say that knitting with circular knitting needles is predominantly useful for bulky projects like Afghans and blankets.

Working with circular knitting needles is an enjoyable experience. They are great to use, they are quick and neat and smooth. By using these needles you can easily produce beautiful and amazing craft projects. And once you are acquainted with circular knitting needles, you might wonder why you did not use them until now!
