Versatile and practical, our exclusive double pointed needles are available in both nickel-plated and wood options. The 4” knitting needles work wonders for mittens while the 6” dpns are the go-to needle for sock knitters. For hats and sleeves, we have a superb selection of 8” needles.
Double the Points, Double the Fun with Double Pointed Needles
Double pointed needles (DPNs) are a practical choice for knitting in the round. Available in both our nickel plated finish and our laminated birch wood, we’ve got several sizes for all those small circumference works of art. Choose 4” knitting needles when you’re making mittens, and 5” or 6” dpns when you’re making socks. For hats or sweater sleeves that are worked up on larger size needles you can grab a pair of 8” dpns in sizes from US 4 (3.50 mm) to US 11 (8.0 mm). Knit Picks DPNs are smooth, strong, and comfortable to work with for hours on end.
Get your DPN fix in a set or individually. Our double pointed needle kits come with sizes US 0 (2.0 mm) to US 3 (3.25 mm). The complete set of 4” or 6” needles also come with a nice case to hold them all together. Or, you can buy just the size you need.
Although most knitters will use 4 double pointed needles for projects, our sets come with 5 for when you need that extra circumference (or when you drop one under the couch).
