A wonderfully warm turtleneck, a sweater or a pair of soft socks. Knitting these projects is easier done with circular knitting needles. We want to tell you a little bit about these fine needles!
Circular knitting needles are in fact two short needles that are connected to each other by a cable. In Germany, for example, a lot of people always knit on circular needles. And in The Netherlands they mainly use straight knitting needles. Interesting, because circular needles have many advantages.
Benefits of circular knitting needles
You can easily knit round projects like socks, but a straight piece is made ??just as quickly. With circular needles you do not get cramps because you knit in an ergonomic way. You do not keep the needles under your arms and you can continue to sit upright. Because the knitting needles are 'closed', your stitches will not slide off.

Length of the needles
Because there is quite a big difference between sizes, check the size of your knitting project and choose which size circular needles you will need. You can choose from 40, 60 and 80 centimeters in length. Look around between the many different circulars in our assortment.
