Clover Takumi bamboo double pointed knitting needles have a tapered, round point that never splits the yarn. Clover double pointed knitting needles are smooth to the touch and become even smoother to the touch the more you knit with them. Clover Takumi bamboo knitting needles are 60% lighter than aluminum knitting needles of the same size, so your hand doesn't tire even after long hours of knitting. Needle thickness is important because it determines stitch size. You can be sure that every Clover bamboo knitting needle with the same size will be of the exact same thickness and shape. Single pointed, double pointed, and circular needles with the same number and size can be used interchangeably - the result will always be beautiful, uniform stitches. Clover Takumi double pointed knitting needles offer the same smooth tips and benefits as the Clover Single Point knitting needles above. Set of 5 per size, 7 inch length.
