What Are These Types Of Needles?

Created by the knitting needles and notions company Signature Needle Arts.

This family-owned company in Wisconsin, the USA, makes products with local, sustainably sourced materials.

While known for their knitting needles, they sell patterns, books, yarn, and other accessories.

They sell three needles.

  • Circulars
  • Double point needles (DPNs)
  • Single point knitting needles

The circulars have fixed and interchangeable versions.

Their products are precision engineered, aircraft quality anodized aluminum, which is treated to reduce wear.

They hold paint better too.

The needles, points and caps are hand polished, smoothed with a finish, and painted in vibrant colors.

This company offers lifetime warranty on their products.

Fixed circulars don’t swivel at the join.

  • Needle Styles: Stiletto tip, Middle, and Blunt
  • Sizes: US 1/2.25mm, US 2/2.75mm.
  • Cord Lengths: 9″

A variety of cord lengths, and they’re flexible. Sometimes the yarn snags at the joins, but this is rare.

Signature Convertible Circulars

No products found.

These might look like average, interchangeable circulars, but they’re a hybrid.

They’re screw operated. The thickness of the cord sizes matches one needle size.

You can’t swap cord lengths between different tips with different needle sizes.

  • Needle Styles: Stiletto, Middy, Blunter
  • Needle Sizes: US 1/2.25mm, US 2/2.75mm, US 3/3.25mm, US 4/3.5mm, US 5/3.75mm, US 6/4mm, US 7/4.5mm, US 8/5mm, US 9/5mm, US 10/6mm.
  • Lengths Of Needle – 4″, 5″, 6″
  • Cord Lengths – 16″, 20″, 24″, 32″, 40″, 47″

The joins are smooth, and the cords are flexible. For all fibers.

Thin or lace-weight yarns might catch on the joins in interchangeable circulars. The joins may unscrew.

Some found they were difficult to put together. Others found they couldn’t do the magic loop as the cable was too stiff.

Signature Double Point Needles

  • Lengths: 5″, 6″, 8″

Great for knitters who prefer ultra-sharp points. A smooth surface prevents yarn snags and makes it easy to slide stitches.

Many knitters like the way the stitches stay on the needle. It’s lightweight to prevent strain on the hands.

Signature needles are luxurious knitting needles, a joy to work with, and guaranteed to last for years.
