Today I am sharing my views on these Knit Pro Interchangeable Circular Needles Set! If you're into knitting you have definitely tried knitting with circular needles and if still haven't tried them out you should definitely give it a go! Personally I find that knitting with circular needles is so much fun!
These Japanese Bamboo Knit Pro needles come in a front flap see-through case which contains 5 needle sets in the following sizes: 3.00 (US 3), 3.50 (US 4), 4.00 (US 6), 4.50 (US 7), and 5.00 mm (US 8).
The set also includes 3 different cable sizes, 60 (24''), 80 (30") and 100 cm (40"), as well as some notions and accessories as, 6 end caps, 3 cable keys and a set of cable connectors!
I've spent the last days working with these and I found that apart from being super versatile to use, the tips are really nice and pointy and do not hurt at all when you use your finger to guide your needle back! The bamboo does really feel smooth and easygoing plus it has a nice grip for easy knitting!
The cables are also really pleasing and really flexible! First of all there are three sizes included, allowing you to choose which to use according to your project! The set also includes the necessary cable key to tighten your needle, so as not to come undone and lose any stitches ( I have not experienced something like this so far, but it definitely sounds horrendous!) Once you've joined your needles you won't feel the join at all, allowing you to work easily!
To sum up, the pros of the Knit Pro Interchangeable Circular Needles Set are: the bamboo is lovely, smooth enough for easy knitting! The cables are really nice and very flexible and allow a smooth join! The front flap case is see-through allowing an easy storage solution combined with organization, plus it is really easy to throw in your bag or even use it as a travel kit! Also the set includes all the necessary notions, accessories and 3 various cables to start knitting immediately! A real cost-effective solution when it comes to circular needles!
Also the Knit Pro Interchangeable Circular Needles Set comes in three lovely packages to choose from, Starter (Set of 5 pairs of needles & accessories), Deluxe (Set of 10 pairs of needles & accessories) and Chunky (Set of 5 pairs of needles & accessories)!
The cons are that I'd like the set to include a 40 cm (16'') cable size to handle smaller circumferences, but other than that I am really satisfied with the needles and I have been using these quite a lot lately!
The good news is, that I’m giving away a full set of these Knit Pro Interchangeable Circular Needles (Starter Pack) for you to try out and start knitting in the round (If you've never tried it, you definitely should!)
All you have to do for your chance to win is to leave a comment on this blog post, saying what you would make with your needles, and if you’ll use this set as a travel kit (I definitely will!). I’m also happy to ship everywhere, so this giveaway is open to readers worldwide!
Good luck everyone; I’ll draw a winner next week!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
