KnitPro Nova Cubics Double Point needles are a great tool to knit small 'in the round' projects such as socks, the tops of hats, even the fingers of gloves. Double-pointed needles intimidate many an intrepid knitter but they are simpler to use than they look - just knit with two needles at a time while the others hold the rest of the project. The KnitPro line of metal needles is made from hollow brass pipes which have been plated with high quality nickel. This provides a smooth and satiny surface that allows stitches to move freely and quickly. These needles are light in weight, durable and comfortable to the hand, and for the first time ever, the cuboid shaped needles are now offered in shiny nickel-plated Brass. The new Nova Cubics needles in electroplate brass have convenient grip and the same flawless feel and finish that our regular brass needles are appreciated for. These needles are either 15cm with 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 3.5mm and 4mm diameters, or 20cm long with 2.5mm, 3mm, 3.5mm, 4mm, 4.5mm and 5mm and come in a clear vinyl case. Please note that the Nova Cubics needles are measured diagonally and not across the square cross-section.
