Knitting Needle Materials
Welcome to FRAYA, your dedicated yarn store. On this page you will find knitting needles suitable for all different types of knitting. Browse our knitting needle sizes now to begin your knitting project here at FRAYA.
We have knitting needles for both professionals and beginners. Choose between a large assortment of olive wood knitting needles, knobbed pins and circular needles from addi in all the different sizes you could ever need.
The great thing about using olive wood knitting needles is that they are so easy to work with thanks to the smooth surface, which makes the stitches glide gracefully over them. Olive wood knitting is good for loose knitting and a good place to start if you are brand new to knitting. Olive wood needles also feel warm and comfortable in your hands as you knit. This is not always the case with regular knitting needles made from aluminium.
Choosing the right knitting needle is mainly a question of preference. Some people prefer aluminium needles while others are sworn supporters of the olive wood knitting needles. Your choice also depends on what you are knitting and what material you are using.
If you knit a lot, you know how important it is to have the right pair of knitting needles. The needles are a big part of your knitting experience. Therefore, you must have the perfect equipment and make no compromises. We have chosen a wide selection of the best knitting needles for you to choose from. All are the highest quality, no matter the material they are made from.
Knitting Needle Sizes
All our knitting needle sizes are shown in cm and mm, so you can easily work out what size they are in US and UK sizes and imagine how big they will feel in your hands.
The cm figure refers to the length of the knitting needles, typically around 60cm or 80cm for circular needles, and anywhere from 20cm to 40cm for knobbed pins.
The mm figure refers to the true knitting needle size and is the number you should look out for when choosing knitting needles for a specific pattern or size!
2 mm to 2.5 mm – US sizes 0 and 1 – good for knitting lacey designs.
2.25 mm to 3.25 mm – US sizes 1 to 3 – perfect for knitting socks!
3.25 mm to 3.75 mm – US sizes 3 to 5 – the right size for lightweight knitting.
3.75 mm to 4 mm – US sizes 5 to 7 – slightly lighter than standard, great for knitting gloves.
4.5 mm to 5.5 mm – US sizes 7 to 9 – the most popular size and ideal for beginners.
5.5 mm to 8 mm – US sizes 9 to 11 – great for practicing chunkier knits.
