Why are there different types of knitting needles?

Knitting projects can look completely different but are all created with the same tool, the knitting needle.

addi Circular Knitting Needles

Circular knitting needles have two tips that are connected to each other by a cable of variable length. You can use them to knit in back and forth rows or in rounds. The needle can therefore be used flexibly for knitting projects in rounds such as hats, jumpers and jackets as well as for straight objects such as scarves, shawls and blankets.

Our addi Double-Pointed Needles

The needle set is a set of rigid stocking knitting needles. They are used for knitting socks, hats or even gloves. Unlike circular knitting needles, stocking needles are used for smaller, circular knitting projects. The classic needle set consists of five stocking needles, each with two tips.

Story

Our addi Straight Needles

Straight needles are long, straight knitting needles (20-40 cm) with one point. At the other end, the needles have a kind of button. This prevents the stitches from slipping off the needle at the end.

Story

The addi Cable Stitch Needle

A cable needle is short and has two points. It has a V-shaped bend in the middle. It is used for knitting cable stitches.
