Circular Needles (75 - 80 cm)
£3.42 – £7.95
Circular needles, have knit pins to work on at either end of a plastic cord.
They can be used either in-the-round ie to knit continuously – a tube shape, or to use like straight pins to knit to and fro – just using the cord of the circular needle for added length for large numbers of stitches. They are especially useful for picking up large numbers of stitches on cardigans along the two front edges and around the neck.
They are used as the norm in many European countries, as opposed to straight pins.
