Cast-on to an effortless new method of knitting socks, sleeves, hats and many other small-diameter in-the-round projects with addi® Bamboo FlexiFlips XL. These specially designed needles have a section of flexible cord between two needle tips, much like circular needles, but the cord is only 1.6" long between two 4.25" tips, instead acting as flexible double-pointed needles (DPNs). Unlike traditional rigid DPNs, their angles can be adjusted to rest comfortably in the hand, and tips not in use can be pointed to stay out of the way.
With traditional sets of 5 rigid DPNs, stitches are distributed over a "circle" of 3-4 needles and then knit with the remaining needle. With easy to use FlexiFlips, stitches are simply distributed over 2 needles which each bend in the middle to form a circle, and then knit with the 3rd. This results in only two needle changes per row.
These bamboo FlexiFlips have matching precise tips on either end, whereas the metal FlexiFlips have a dual-tip design with one addi® Rocket lace tip and one addi Turbo® regular tip on each needle.
Each set includes three 12" addi® Bamboo FlexiFlips XL of the same size/gauge, packaged in a handy reusable storage tube. Available in sizes 4mm / US 6 – 8mm / US 11. They measure 30 cm (approx 12" - 5" tips with 2" cord). Check out the 10" metal addi® FlexiFlips XL already available in sizes 4mm / US 6 through 8mm / US 11.
All addi® needles have a lifetime warranty, redeemable at the place you purchased them (like Urban Yarns!) with receipt.
