Lace knitting needle in use
Anyone who thought that every idea about knitting needles had been there before will now be surprised: addiNovel is the ergonomic fine knitting needle with smooth but structured metal tips. Sounds paradoxical?
But it leads to a great new knitting experience – especially for knitting lovers with hand problems. We subject the ingenious new circular knitting needle to a detailed test and inspect it from the lace to the rope.
Massage for the hands – a whole new knitting feeling
Shiny, pointed, ergonomic = perfect!
As usual, our needles shine not only from the outside, but also during use with the well-known advantages: The transition from tip to rope is hardly noticeable and perfectly worked out. The tips are particularly light and smooth. They glide precisely and quickly into the stitches.
The addiNovel circular knitting needle is characterized by its special feel: The square needle tips with rounded edges and structured surface ensure good ergonomics when knitting, even under high demands. Knitting enthusiasts with osteoarthritis or other diseases of the hands and muscles will also get their money’s worth, because the new needles fit well in the hand and can be held effortlessly.
During knitting, the combination of square, smooth and structured needles feels like a small massage for fingers and hands. This stimulates blood circulation and reduces tension, even when knitting for several hours.
Perfect for knitting lacematter patterns
Lace pattern are a lot of fun with the addiNovel knitting needles!
Our new addiNovel fine knitting needle has an extra smooth but structured surface. The small “hills” on the needle ensure that knitting patterns do not slip off the needle so quickly and unintentionally. In addition, the long tapered tip shape is suitable for knitting many stitches together comfortably at once. These features make addiNovel the perfect companion for lace and ajour patterns.
This is how the size of square needles is determined
Rope length and needle size are printed on the rope
Our addiNovel knitting needles are equipped with the popular red rope, which is not only highly flexible, but also shows all important information about the respective needle: In addition to the rope length, the needle size is also printed. Should an uncertainty nevertheless occur, the needle can be measured with the normal needle gauge of addi. To do this, insert the tip of the addiNovel into a hole of the needle size. If the tip of the needle fits into the hole of the needle gauge up to the first knop pattern, this is the correct size.
addiNovel needle size
The following applies to all addi needles: The diagonal of the cross section is decisive for the needle size specification. Sounds complicated? But it is quite simple: If we were to cut through the addiNovel, we would have a square in front of us. The needle size corresponds to the diagonal from one corner to the opposite corner. So the addiNovel with 3,5 mm needle size have a diagonal of 3,5 mm. Our round addi knitting needle tips, e.g. from the sock miracle, the olive wood and bamboo needles, are also measured by diameter. Hot, we would cut them through, the diameter of the circle would make the measurement.
Since the circumference of a circle at the same diameter is larger than that of a square, the addiNovel should always be chosen in the next higher needle size. For example, if the instructions say that a 3.0mm needle should be used, we recommend using a 3.5mm addiNovel. This will be especially appreciated by those who often have to use very small needle sizes due to a very loose knitting pattern. Please note that this is a recommendation based on the experience of many knitters. But in the end it depends on your own technique.
Even stitch patterns with addi Novel
All these characteristics of the addiNovel circular knitting needle result in a very even stitch pattern when knitting with the new square needles. Even simple knitted patterns look more uniform and even.
