Addi CraSy Trio needles – the addi sock revolution.
"The advantage of these needles over standard DPNs is the stitches of your sock (or other item worked in the round) are divided over two needles, you use the third needle to knit with. Because there are one, or more likely, two less needle transitions, knitting with these should be faster and smoother than traditional DPNs. The joins between the needle tips and the short cable are all pristine" - Carol Feller
With this 3-piece set of flexible sock knitting needles, now, even the smallest diameters can be knitted very easily, and without getting tired.
This is possible due to the particular bendiness of the middle part, and the combination of one BASIC- and one LACE tip. Each tip is 85 mm long connected by a 40-mm rope. When knitting in rounds, the stitches are distributed over two needles and the third needle is used for easy knitting – meaning only two needle changes per row. Due to the flexible middle part, the needle fits into any hand, and so ensures a very pleasant knitting experience. They can also be used as cable pattern needles.
The idea for this fantastic needle set came from all-rounder Sylvie Rasch and they make it easier and quicker to knit socks and also mittens and baby clothes.
Length of each needle 21cm.
