Interchangeable knitting needles are wonderfully versatile tools, and Lykke needles are a delight to use. Made of smooth, hard birch wood (bamboo for Grove needles), they feel strong and steady in your hands. They taper beautifully to a good, sharp tip. They are available in four colours: Indigo, in a lovely blue, Umber, in a darker, rich brown, Grove in palest green and Driftwood, in soft, grey wood.
The size of each needle is engraved onto the metal joint, which means it won’t rub off and leave you trying to find your needle gauge to see if you’ve got the right size. The join with the cable is very smooth, so the yarn slides over it without a murmur as you knit.
This is a fantastic set of 3.5″ needle tips – perfect for small-circumference projects like socks, hats and sleeves. It includes:
- 9 pairs of interchangeable needle tips (3.25mm, 3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4mm, 4.5mm, 5mm, 5.5mm, 6mm, 6.5mm)
- 4 cables (2 x 16″/40cm, 1 x 20″/50cm, 1 x 24″/60cm)
- 2 connectors
- 4 keys
- 8 stoppers
It comes in a compact case of soft fabric, with a snap pocket for cords and connectors. Knitting with these needles is a joy, and this set is a must-have in your tool kit.
