When it came to stocking knitting needles in the shop, I could only go for my favourite brand, HiyaHiya Sharp!
With extra pointy tips these needles are perfect for lace, brioche and cable knitting, but are equally at home with any knitting project.
A useful needle size conversion chart can be found here.
More from the HiyaHiya website:
Our flexible cables and seamless joins are teamed with high quality stainless steel sharp tips to offer strength, with a hollow construction for a lovely lightweight feel. The tapered point of the sharp tip is ideal for intricate stitches and lace patterns.
These circulars ensure that stitches glide effortlessly over the needle tips.
