Knitter's Pride Cubics Single Point Needles: The cuboid shape in square cross-section gradually gives way to perfectly tapered birch wood needle points and creates a unique ergonomic shape that provides comfort to the hand and yields uniform stitch formation. Elegant, densified, laminated Symfonie Rose wood is rich in appearance, yet lightweight, strong & flexible. The polished wood surface works effortlessly with every type of yarn without slowing down knitting rhythm. Perfect for beginners too - provides easy grip and control over your knitting. Needle size is measured diagonally, fitting into a standard needle sizer, just like round needles.
