Carpe Diem Cardi Kit ~ NEEDLES
Scoop up the needles you'll need for the Carpe Diem Cardi right here. Chiaogoo needles are our top pick because of their fantastic quality. The thick plastic cable is stronger and wider than you'll see on most large size circular needles, making it easier to knit chunky yarns on.
The 2 sets of needles you'll need for the Cardi, shown here, are size 17 (12 mm) and Size 19 (16 mm). Both sets are 40" long circular needles. The 40" cord length will enable you to use the "Magic Loop" method (as opposed to Double Pointed Needles) for the cuff and sleeves of this sweater and is also a great length for knitting the body of the sweater.
These needles will also work well for chunky knit blankets and other designs that call for many stitches on the needles, i.e. many of our patterns!
