Help save the environment, become a happier and more fulfilled person, and make the world a better place, just by picking the right knitting needles. Do you want to know how? Stay tuned…

As enjoyable as knitting is when you have the right tools to knit with, it can also be such a bummer with the wrong type of knitting needles.

By going into almost any knitting store, you can’t help but notice that there are all types of knitting needle brands and styles to choose from. “Hmmmmm, what to do, what to do, just what should I choose” you may have heard yourself think. Have no fear, this article will help you to clarify some of the doubts and confusions that you may have about knitting needles and how to purchase the best ones for your loopy knitting needs.

The first step in choosing the best knitting needles for any project is to consider what type of yarn you are using. Duh, I know that may seem obvious to you, but bear with me here. After checking the knitting needle size the yarn label calls for, do run to buy that size right away, because there is something else that you must be aware of.

Considering that you may knit a little bit differently than the average knitter, you may need to choose a slightly different knitting needle size than suggested by the yarn label. If you tend to knit tightly then you should consider getting slightly larger needles, whereas if you knit looser than average you may want to consider getting slightly smaller knitting needles.

Knitting needles are reusable. Therefore, you should get a pair that you are going to want, and plan to, use in the even after completing your current knitting project adventure. In other words, don’t buy garbage, buy the good stuff.

Another important rule of thumb for choosing the right knitting needles, or circular knitting needles for that matter, is to consider the size of your project. The general rule of thumb is, the bigger the project, the longer the knitting needles you will need.

Choose the best knitting needles for your knitting project and your knitting style and keep a smile on your face for the many projects to come.
