Rocket Squared Circular Needles - from addi
A massage for your hands! Addi® Rocket Squared needles' combination of slightly-rounded squared edges and a uniquely textured tip surface are designed to promote positive ergonomics, stimulating circulation and reducing tension. They sit naturally in the hand in order to be held effortlessly. This is especially beneficial to those who may struggle with grip issues such as arthritis, etc.
In addition, the longer-tapered Rocket points make sliding into the tightest or most intricate stitches a breeze. And, as with all addi® circular needles, the transition from tip to cord is seamless thanks to precise German engineering and perfectly pliable blue nylon cords.
It's all about the texture! Not only does the surface of the Rocket Squared promote comfort while knitting, but users will also quickly realize that stitches stay on the needle - where they belong (think of it as a no-slip tip). Thanks to the texture's spacing, you will experience perfectly even stitches every time.
Got gauge? Fear not, these new addi Rocket Squared needles can be gauged on your addi needle gauge just like their rounded cousins. Many knitters find they use the same size square needles as they do with traditional ones for a given project. However, because their explicit purpose is to encourage you to hold your needles differently, you may find that you need to use a different size than usual to get gauge.
All addi needles are manufactured to exact metric sizes (listed US sizes are approximate) and feature a lifetime warranty from any manufacturer's defect.
