Hobby Lobby Knitting Needles – Complete Buying Guide & Reviews

Hobby Lobby stocks a range of knitting needles that are available to purchase from their online store.

They stock generic needles and also some brands. The price point for many of these needles is affordable. In saying that, you get what you pay for and some needles are not the best quality.

Hobby Lobby Circular Knitting Needles

These are lightweight aluminum needles with a flexible cable connecting them.

Available in sizes US 1 (2.5mm), 2 (2.75mm), 3 (3.25mm), 4 (3.5mm), 5 (3.75mm), 9, (5.5mm)

Reading the customer reviews, you’re better off spending your money on something better quality.

The users had cables come off the needle tips and found the yarn snagged on the join between the needle and the cable.

Birch Wood Circular Knitting Needle

Natural birch wood. Size 17 (12mm) Length: 40 Inches. They have tapered points. The ends of the tips have a metal cap where the cord is connected.       

Other sizes available – 19 (15mm), 36 (20mm) and 50 (25mm)

These larger needles would suit chunky/bulky yarn projects.

The reviews are more favorable for these needles. Users found the yarn glides smoothly over the tips and the joins.

36″ Circular Knitting Needles

Brand: Yarnology. These are circular needles 36 inches in length, including the cord plus the needle tips.

Sizes available: US11 (8mm), 13 (9mm), and 15 (10mm) The needle tips are aluminum, and the cord is plastic. 

I wouldn’t recommend these needles due to users experiencing the cables coming off the tips. The join where the tip and cable meet is not smooth. The yarn snags on the joints. 

Interchangeable Needles

There are mixed reviews for this product. Some users loved them, others found the cables unscrewed, and they also had a memory so stayed coiled.

Sizes of needles: 6 (4mm), 8 (5mm), 10 (6mm)

Cord sizes: 3 – Cords (Extends length From 24″ – 40″) It doesn’t state the in-between length.

Users who left reviews were not impressed with the quality. They found they came unscrewed while knitting, the cables kinked, and some of the needles broke when in use.

The bamboo needle is smooth and lightweight.

Single Point Knitting Needles 

These needles have a tapered point on one end and a knob at the other, which prevents stitches from slipping off. 

  • Sizes available: US 6 (4mm), 8 (5mm), 9 (5.5mm) 11 (8mm) and 17 (12.5mm)
  • Length: 14″

Users reported the colored coating on these needles came off after several uses. One reviewer experienced her yarn becoming discolored as she knitted with these needles.

I wouldn’t recommend the needles mentioned above. There aren’t enough positive reviews to warrant purchasing them, even if they are cheap.

You’re better off spending a little more and getting good quality needles to last. For affordable quality needles, I recommend the Knit Picks range.

Many lovely needles to explore. For more information, visit my post here.
