The Benefits of Circular Knitting Needles in Australia
Many knitters are loyal to their flat needles, but there are just as many who love circular needles, and for good reason. Here are some of the benefits of using circular knitting needles in Australia.
Better weight distribution. One advantage of circular needles is that they can distribute weight more evenly and hold more stitches, which is especially helpful for larger projects. When you set out to create something big, such as a blanket, it can become heavy and difficult to handle with hundreds of stitches on one needle. When you use circular needles, most of the stitches will remain on the cord in the middle, which means that the weight will distribute more evenly and keep your gauge more even.
No more lost needles. Another advantage is that you won’t have to worry as much about losing one of your needles because they remain attached. Losing a needle in the middle of a project can be extremely frustrating – especially when you’re away from home.
Safer knitting. When you’re knitting in a crowded space or in public, there’s less risk of poking someone with a circular needle. These needles make it easier to confine your work to your personal space and keep it out of the way of strangers.
