Bryspun Circular Knitting Needles

While they sell circular needles, I couldn’t find them online. They’re flexible, swiveling at the join, with plastic cables and needle tips so they’re great for sock knitting. Your best bet is a yarn store or crafts brick and mortar store.

  1. Jodie,
    Happy New Year! May I ask what year you did your review of Bryson Knitting needles especially the circular? I got word 1 so ago they have gone out of business. I found 1 pair on Etsy but it’s to small. My HS students for community service hours in late January will be doing project Linus. I have a few but need ones with longer cords. If you know any place else I could try,please let me know. Thank you. Char

    • Hi Char. Thanks for the heads up about Bryspun Knitting Needles being unavailable. I will update my post. Like you I haven’t been able to find an online stockist of the Bryspun circular knitting needles. If I do, I will let you know. Have you heard of Prym Ergonomic circular needles? They may be an alternative. Here’s a link on Amazon for you to check them out. Cheers Jodie

      • Thank you Jodie for the update. I’ll check out amaze for the Prym circular needles at Amazon. Do you have a preference for an interchangeable knitting needle set? I don’t need anything below size 6& larger then 13. I prefer non metal needles that are @ least 5″ long. I looked online today at a set from Knitters Pride(set with different color needles)& ( ) Stix by Jimmy bean wool but they are $150 on their website which is very $$ in my opinion. Other suggestions are welcome. Thank you! Char

        • Hi Char. That’s great. In relation to Interchangeable Knitting Needle sets, I have a post covering a number of set in my post here – I really enjoy knitting with my wooden Knit Picks Rainbow Option interchangeable set. There are 9 pairs US 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,10.5 and 11, so that set does include 2 needle sizes you won’t use. The tips are 4 3/4 inch and I find them very comfortable to knit with. They are affordable too. You might find they are out of stock so similar to the Rainbow is their Mosaic set. Cheers Jodie
