Chiaogoo 9 inch circular needles.
Many knitters told us that these needles speed up their sock knitting because you do not have to reposition needles as you would do with DPNs or magic loop. Also, if you have laddering/tension problem with DPNs or magic loop, especially with stranded knitting, give these needles a try!
Red Stainless Steel Circulars use flexible, multi-strand, steel cable coated with red nylon that allows your yarn to slide smoothly. The cable has no memory. Made of surgical-grade stainless steel, these needles have smooth, satin-sheen finish that won’t reflect any light, making it easier to see your work. The sharp tips and joins are precisely machined. These needles are lightweight and strong.
Needle size is permanently laser imprinted on each circular.
The last picture shows 56 stitches of fingering weight yarn, knitted on US 1.5, or 2.5 mm needles. Gauge is 8 sts = 1 inch.
Please note that we do not carry these needles at our studio on Granville Island.
