Recommended Needles for Sweater Knitting
Our favorite needle for knitting sweaters is hands down, the addi Rockets. addi Rockets will take your knitting to new speeds that you will love when knitting a sweater! With the Rockets you have the sharper, longer Lace point that so many have come to love and addi’s stellar Turbo plating. You will pick up your stitches with ease, and move them along quick as can be.
addi Rockets are now coated with white bronze, rather than nickel. The process used to produce the bronze-coated needles uses less electricity and water, and is more environmentally-friendly keeping with the vision of Rita Mae's. This new finish is also great news for knitters who are allergic to nickel!
Please note that all sizes US 0 and smaller have a gold cord while all other sizes have a blue cord. Per industry standard, all circular knitting needles are measured from tip to tip. For example, a 32″ circular needle is 32 inches from one needle tip to the other.
Actual needle tip lengths:
16″ and 20″ circulars: 3.5 in/8.8 cm
24″ and above: 5 in/12.8 cm
