These circular needles allow children to knit 'tube' projects. in the round such as socks, cowls, hats - anything they fancy really! The best part is they can be used for flat knitting too - at the end of each row, just switch the needles around as you would with normal single-pointed needles. The advantage for heavier garments is your project sits in your lap as you work, instead of hanging off the needles and weighing down young arms! The clever folks at Addi have provided a little helping hand with these needles: each needle in a pair has a different color tip - one brass, one nickel - helping younger knitters to learn the ins and outs of circular knitting. We hear plenty of 'young at heart' knitters love them too... Smooth, strong and light, these high-grade Aluminum needles are designed to have just the right amount of 'slippiness' for your stitches. Addi is rightly renowned world-wide for excellent-quality knitting needles. Made by knitters, for knitters, they are smooth, fast and designed with your needs in mind.
