Featuring smooth joins, perfectly tapered tips and flexible cables, this set includes 9 of our bestselling needle tips 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?

Made of beautiful laminated birch wood, the Rainbow needles show off waves of color and provide just the right amount of grip to make slick yarns manageable.

“Can needles be called sensual? Absolutely, yes. Harmony Wood Knitting Needles look and feel as great as they look… You may love them at first for their striking appearance (oh the colors!) but Harmony Wood Needles are very practical. Laminated birch makes them strong and stable. The stability allows for sharp points, particularly nice for lace knitting…” Knit ‘N Style, June 2008.

“It is interesting that the idea for these beautiful multicolored needles came from gourmet kitchen utensils. The layers of laminated birch give these needles a strength that is missing in regular wooden needles…Time was spent testing these needles with real knitters who were especially enthusiastic and thrilled to keep the needles.” Creative Knitting, March 2008

“The newest addition to the Knit Picks Options line of interchangeable circular needles is this collection of laminated birch tips. These Harmony needles are ultra smooth and extra strong due to the many layers of wood that make up the tips…” Knit Scene, Winter 07/Spring 08

“Function and beauty combine in these colorful birch needles by Knit Picks. Lamination adds strength to wood and make it possible to create sharp points perfect for lace and fine knitting for the Harmony Wood Needles.” XRX Knitter’s, Winter 2007

“These needles are close to perfect. Good points even for lace knitting. The gorgeous coloring makes it easy to see even the finest yarn with no glare…” Planet Purl, March 2008

"These needles are made of laminated birch. The tip, as with the metal Options Interchangeables, is enjoyably pointy. The shaft of every needle in the kit is smooth and inviting in ways I usually see only on handmade wood knitting tools. They feel hand polished. The needles are light and the join is nearly invisible to my fingers. I am gobsmacked. These things are incredible.” Knitty, Fall 2007

“Laminated birch needles are beautiful, light and strong, with a sharper point and more durability…These needles also have sharper points than most wooden needles, making them a good choice for lace knitting and other work that requires precision.” www.About.com, March 2009

“I keep one of those Knit Picks interchangeable sets (with both wood and metal) in my suitcase for knitting emergencies.” www.Yarnharlot.com, February 2009

“I heart Knit Picks! The Harmony Options set is so beautiful! It comes with needle tips size 4-11 and two each of the 24’ and 32’ cables. It also came with a little bag to carry it all in, 8 end caps, 2 keys, and a vinyl case for the cables. I love love LOVE it!!! I’m telling ya, Knit Picks has a customer for life!” www.knittingdodo.wordpress.com, February 2009

"I just received my new Harmony Wood Needle tips and cables. I had read on several sites how nice these needles were.  They didn't exaggerate at all. I have used aluminum, plastic and bamboo needles.  Until today,  I always preferred the bamboo needles.  Today, I am a convert to Harmony Wood needles.  The wood feels fabulous to hold.  The yarn moves along easily.  And they are so lovely and colorful.  I can't wait to replace my others with more Harmony. I am already 1/2 way finished with a new hat since opening the package. Thank you for a great product" Cheryl L., Knit Picks Customer

“In my knitting needles I look for special qualities, they have to lie smoothly in my hands like the Harmony woods from Knitpicks do, because they are made of a natural material. They are made of wood, of layers of birch, and that means that you have a living material in your hand which bends with your movements slightly and that’s very good, in my opinion. The second very important thing is that the Knit Picks Harmony Wood needles have such sharp points, long points, which make speed knitting much easier.” Miriam Tegels, World’s Fastest Knitter


“I LOVE the harmony needles. They are so smooth, sharp, and warm feeling. Metal needles make my hands hurt (because of arthritis), but the wood stays warm, and I can knit for hours with them. And they are much slicker than the bamboo ones I have tried.” Lisa B., Knit Picks customer

While the needles are beautiful and I love to knit with them, unfortunately the wires have pulled out of 3 of my 4 sets. This is very disappointing considering the cost and the breaking in the middle of knitting a project. NOTE FROM KNIT PICKS: I am sorry to hear that some of your cables have come apart. Please call our Customer Service at 1-800-574-1323 and we will be happy to take care of that for you.

I didn't check each one when they first arrived, and although I made a couple of projects without trouble when I started with a new size the wood dropped right out of the metal. I checked the others I hadn't worked with yet and a total of 4 individual needles have fallen out.

These needles make me happy every time I use them. The yarn moves smoothly for knitting, but stitches do not fall off. It is very easy to change to a longer cord when knitting round afghans by using two endcaps and switching the tip. The replacement cables thread on securely. Thank you, KnitPicks!

Although at first I loved my set, I have been having problems with the thinner needles snapping at the the joining area, or the wires pulling out. I do like the flexablily of the cords for magic loop knitting.

4 out of 5 stars

I like these needles. That said, you do have to be careful that they don't come unscrewed. I was working on a Lopi sweater which involves some heavy yarn and one of the ends did come off. However, they are pretty and useful and better than my disintegrating Denise set I had been using for the past 15 years!!
