ChiaoGoo SS Red Circular metal circular needles
The Knit RED™ line of surgical stainless steel circulars have a smooth, satin-sheen finish and memory-free, multi-strand, steel cable coated with red nylon allowing yarn to slide right over. The precisely machined tips are ergonomically designed with a bend to ease hand fatigue. Needle size is permanently laser imprinted on each circular. The joins are just spectacular!
How to choose the length:
When knitting in the round, you are advised to choose needles that are shorter than the circumference of your project. For flat knitting, it is more comfortable to knit with longer cables (80 or 120cm).
- 40cm circular needles: suitable for knitting sleeves, collars, hats and other circular pieces with small diameters in the round.
- 60cm circular needles: suitable for knitting children's sweaters and close-fitting women's tops in the round.
- 80cm circular needles (standard size): suitable for knitting the body of adult sweaters and other pieces of larger diameters in the round, and for knitting flat.
