You’re going to FLIP over these innovative needles. Addi’s FlexiFlips are a wonderful alternative to double point needles.

These specially designed 8″ circulars (3.5″ tips with 1″ cord) rest comfortably in the hand, and act as flexible double pointed needles. Easy to use, stitches are simply distributed over two needles, and then knit with the third – resulting in only two needle changes per row.

In addition, each needle features a dual-tip design with a traditional AddiTurbo tip on one end, and a sharp AddiRocket tip on the other.

Naturally, these needles are the hottest thing to hit the market in a long time and in are great demand. Available in sizes 0-8, including 2.25 and 2.75mm, we currently have ALL SIZES in stock.

  1. Love my Lykke crochet hook the top comes to a smooth point rather than a curve make it really easy to pick up stitches. The hook is deep enough I don’t feel like I am going the yarn is going to escape.

  2. I’m curious to try the FlexiFlips; it’s an interesting concept! I like the gauge ruler, too; one may find its way home with me next trip to SWAK. 😉

    I’m also curious to know what super-short tips are used for? My trusty ol’ Boye tips are usually just right — except for the size 15s, for which the thick part of the barrel is so short that they are miserable to hold onto and make me want to throw them far across the room, LOL. I can’t picture trying to hold such dainty needles comfortably.

    1. They’re along the same line as the FlexiFlips, another option for those who don’t care for DPN’s. The super short needles are for knitting things in the round with a short circumference, like socks. That’s why the size range is 000-3. Definitely dainty knitting!
