Knitting is a relaxing, portable and creative hobby, but selecting the proper needles could mean the difference between an enjoyable pastime, or sheer frustration. There are many different needle shapes to accommodate different projects, and they come in various sizes and materials. How do you choose the correct ones?
Consider the item you are knitting. Do you need straight needles or circular needles to accomodate more stitches.
Choose the correct needle size to achieve the correct tension. A tension swatch is recommended.
Select the correct material. Make sure the ply is the same as the pattern and all the same dye lot.
