I don’t know, but this is bothering: Every pattern has a different needle size. What do I do?

Buy them all! :thumbsup: :rofling:

Many of us have interchangeable needles to solve that problem. There is a thread at the top of the forum about them. If can’t afford them or don’t want to then the only solution is to buy them as you need them. :wink:

Here are some links to two threads about needles.
Thread One
Thread Two

I bought needles virtually every pay day for the 2 yrs I’ve been knitting until I got all of the sizes that I wanted. Then, my husband surprised me with a set of Denises one day…I continued to collect needles…then I got the KnitPick Options set…I will continue to collect needles…it’s a sickness…part of my knitting addiction :blush:

Hi Glucose

I know the feeling - fortunately, there’s always charity shops here that sell second-hand needles and my particular favourite are old Aero ones. The points are extremely well-tapered (like the green ones on Amy’s videos).

If you don’t want to keep paying full price, perhaps checkout your e.bay site - where you can pick up some real bargains.

Good Hunting!

Best Wishes


I had lots of different needles and still needed more :frowning: with each pattern I wanted to make. Then I got some extra $$$ and I treated myself to the Denise Interchangeable set and :inlove: I LOVE them. I haven’t had to buy any more sizes yet. They are wonderful to work with. :smiley:
