I was rather intrigued by the design of the new Prym Ergonomics Knitting Needles. I’ve been knitting for over 20 years and have tried a lot of different brands and types of needles so I wondered if they really were a new invention. They come in an aesthetically pleasing box and as the information says, they are made from a ‘high-performance synthetic material,’ have hook tips, clickheads and are triangular in shape.
To give them a thorough testing I tried out three different sizes, 3mm, 5mm and 12mm.
I had a few thoughts about the needles as I got them out of the box.
1. Would they knit up to the same tension as my regular knitting needles, given their triangular shape?
2. Are the hook tips any good and do they really make it easier to pick up each stitch?
3. Are they lightweight and more comfortable to knit with?
4. How do the clickheads work, and will they stop my knitting from sliding off the ends?
I’ve written a review for Minerva Crafts about the new ergonomic knitting needles by Prym… head over to their blog to find out more…
