Nova Cubics Platina Square Needles 40" by Knitter's Pride
If you love square shaped needles, Knitter's Pride Nova Cubics Platina are serious fun.
Engineered from hollow brass pipes and Chrome plated, the shiny smooth surface will help your yarn slide along the needle. The cuboid shape in cross section gradually gives way to perfectly tapered needle tips. Which are now longer and more pointy to make it easier to pick up your stitches.
How are Knitter's Pride Cubics Needles ergonomic?
A square needle decreases contact stress by giving your fingers a flat surface to rest on while knitting. This is different from a traditionally-shaped round needle, which forces your fingers to rest on a smaller, convex-shaped surface area. The tension caused by a round needle can result in poor circulation and impaired nerves. Eliminating or reducing contact tension by using a square needle can significantly reduce pain.
We’ve had a number of customers tell us that they had stopped knitting until they discovered square knitting needles!
Square needles are perfect for knitters who have arthritis, carpal tunnel or stiffness in their wrists and fingers. Even if you’re not currently experiencing hand or wrist pain, it’s worth treating them right by selecting needles and tools that support all the knitting they'll be doing for years to come!
Fun Fact: Needle size is measured diagonally, and fits into a standard needle sizer just like round needles.
