Circular needles are two straight needle tips, joined together by a flexible cable. These cables come in a variety of lengths (given in inches or centimenters). Circular needles can be used to knit in the round, magic loop or backwards and forwards as you would with straight needles (making it possible to work more stitches than you can fit on to straight needles). They are perfect for socks, gloves, hats and jumpers.
Circular needles are available as 'fixed circular' (ie. the cord is fixed to the tip) or 'interchangeable (ie. the cable and the tips screw together).
Circular needles are available in various materials incuding metal and wood.
