Addi Rocket Needles represent a finely tuned innovation for lace knitters and anyone else knitting with fingering or finer weight yarns. Unfinished brass provides just the right amount of resistance to your stitches, thus offering greater control and preventing those looser lace stitches from jumping off the needle every time you set your work down. Lace Needles also have Rocket tips that have longer and sharper (but not too sharp!) points than addi’s Turbo tips. This makes manipulating multiple stitches or sliding into small stitches so very much easier.
Please note that all sizes US 0 and smaller have a gold cord; all other sizes have blue cords (however, the US 1 – 60″ and US 9 – 60″ may have red cords until new stock arrives). Per industry standard, all circular knitting needles are measured from tip to tip. For example, a 32″ circular needle is 32 inches from one needle tip to the other.
Actual needle tip lengths:
16″ and 20″ circulars: 3.5 in/8.8 cm
24″ and above: 5 in/12.8 cm
