Circular Knitting Needles
Circular Knitting Needles are used for heavy or large projects that are wider than a standard knitting needle. They are designed to have two needles joined together with a cable. The cable is strong and smooth and creates less strain on the wrists as the cable can be rested on a surface while knitting. The number of stitches used in a pattern dictates the length of cable required. Circular knitting needles are commonly made of either plastic or wood.
