The 40cm Ergonomic Knitting Needles are an amazing, lightweight easy to knit with design from Prym in a handy extra-long length to accommodate all those big projects. The ergonomic needles are made from a light, high performance synthetic material that allows your knitting to glide easily and quietly, this also make them a fantastic choice for arthritis sufferers. They have a unique drop shaped tip which makes it even easier to pick up stitches and so perfect for beginners. Once those stitches are on the needle they glide easily down the triangular shaped shaft. The needles also click together so not only does it stop you losing one of the pair but they become their own stitch stoppers, keeping your project safe from the dreaded dropped stitch.
