Options Interchangeable Foursquare Majestic Circular Knitting Needle Set


Foursquare needles take the same Knit Picks needles that you know and love and squares them. These square interchangeable knitting needles have smooth, flat sides fit perfectly against your fingers and gently rounded corners offer a comfortable, secure grip, helping keep your hands limber and your stitches even for hours of comfortable knitting.

Boasting the usual strong and smooth layers of laminated birch, these Foursquare needles show off the deep purples, greens, blues, and distinctive black cord of our Majestic needle colorway. The burnished surface delivers just the right amount of grip to easily manage slippery yarns while warming quickly in your hands.

Featuring smooth joins, perfectly tapered tips and flexible cables, this set includes 9 of our bestselling needle tip sizes and 2 sizes of cables - all of which are stored in a handy vinyl case. Two small cable keys are included, which allow you to tighten your needle tips to the cables. Working on multiple projects that call for the same needle size? Use the included endcaps to safely store your project as you start the next.

Set Includes
(Needle tip length is 4-3/4")
US Sizes: 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,10.5 and 11 (3.50mm, 3.75mm, 4.00mm, 4.50mm, 5.00mm, 5.50mm, 6.00mm, 6.50mm, and 8mm)
2 each of 24" and 32" lengths, Black
9" x 5" snapped clear vinyl needle case, 8 end caps and 2 cable keys

NOTE: Foursquare needles can be sized with our standard View Sizer, so a size 6 Foursquare needle will fit the same hole as a size 6 round needle. Your knitted gauge with Foursquare needles may vary from the same size round needle.

Looking to expand your interchangeable knitting needle set? We have additional sizes of both needle tips and interchangeable cables available for even more options. Pro tip: The sizing of the cables refer to the total length achieved when the needle tips are attached to the cables.

My hands appreciate knitting with square needles, and I love the feel of the well-finished wood, but my complaint about them is as follows: Who cares whether they fit through a hole in a round needle gauge or not? This means that their circumference is smaller--usually by about a size--than that of the corresponding round needle. What needs to happen is that, say, a size 6 should have the same circumference regardless of shape, and there needs to be a separate needle gauge for square needles. This is obviously not just an issue with KnitPicks needles, but with all manufacturers.

I tried the Foursquare Knitting Needle tips with my interchangeable set and also bought a set of double-pointed needles in the Foursquare. I love them...but like other comments, I won't buy a complete set until they are available in Sunstruck. So much easier to see with a variety of colors of yarn. Thanks for all your great needles!

These needles are very comfortable to use - one suggestion: a lighter color would be great. I had trouble using them with dark yarn.

My concern is that after just a few hours of knitting the finish is already wearing off and the tips are getting rough. Otherwise, these feel good knitting. Just remember you have to use the key to lock them in or will keep unscrewing as you go.

I treated myself to this set last June and I am amazed and delighted at the HUGE difference they are making in my knitting life. I can knit totally comfortably for several hours at a time - no wrist, forearm or elbow pain at all, just a little understandable fatigue from knitting so long. I l-o-v-e LOVE them! Big Request: Please please please consider making them in sunstruck for knitting with darker yarns. Yes, I do put a white pillow case on my lap when working on something dark (that yummy cashmere in black, for instance!) but... Anyway, heartily recommend!

My go to needles have been hiya hiya but I'm looking for square alternatives to help my hands. These are great--I like them a lot. The cables (black) are OK, though a bit stiffer than i'm used to. The wood feels really good, and yarn moves smoothly over joins and needles. My only negative is that they are only available in this dark color. I got ready to start a project using City Tweed Brocade and realized it would be impossible to do the dark burgundy yarn on the dark colored needles. This color is gorgeous, but doesn't work for all situations. A metal or lighter colored wood version is really needed.

i love the square shaped needles as i have developed carpel tunnel and they do not cause me pain with prolonged usage. but the eyes need to have lighter colored needles so i can see the stitches easier. it' s heck getting older, so please make them in sunstruck soon. i love your products

These needles allow for long hours of comfortable knitting. I took these needles to a knitting retreat and was able to knit for 9 hours one day! The stitch definition is beautiful and the 3 extra cables were invaluable, thank you Knit Picks for another great product that increases my knitting pleasure.

I love the square shape and second the calls from other reviewers to offer them in Sunstruck and Nickel Plated. I would buy at set of each!

Love them, but a lighter color such as Sunstruck would make it easier to see the stitches. Any plans for this?

I can now knit for long periods of time without hand fatigue and no longer have pain in my hands for days afterwards. I love them so much, I ordered a second set of the interchangeables, two sets of the two lengths of dpns, and am on the wish list for when the interchangeable shorts are available.

I was not as satisfied with these needles as I hoped I would be. I will not order this kind again, but rather go for the nickle plated ones instead...

These look great! Any chance you will be releasing a nickel plated version? :)
