The Best Mindful Double Pointed Knitting Needles and How to use them

Knitting with Double Pointed Knitting Needles is a science in itself for some. As complicated as it sounds and looks, knitting with 5 needles at the same time is actually not that difficult. Don't you believe it? We would like to convince you otherwise with this blog. But first of all, in general - what are the Double Pointed Knitting Needles used for? Double Pointed Knitting Needles are used for small round projects such as small baby hats, hand warmers or of course, very popular, for socks. The stitches are distributed on 4 knitting needles and knitting is done with the fifth Needle.

Before you start knitting, you need the necessary Double Pointed Knitting Needles. In our Mindful Collection you will find particularly high-quality Double Pointed Knitting Needles made of stainless steel. The needles are particularly durable, strong and never lose their special shine. With our Mindful Collection Double Pointed Knitting Needles you are sure to enjoy them for a very long time. They are available in two different lengths and in a wide range of sizes. Each needle size is provided with a special Inspirational Word, so the needles are not only a knitting instrument but also an instrument of calming and meditation.

The length and size you need depends on your project. If you work according to instructions, the size and length are usually given. If you are unsure, just try knitting with the different gauges to get a feel for it. If you want to equip yourself with the different strengths, the best thing to do is check out our Mindful Double Pointed Knitting Needles Sets. We offer 2 different DPN sets which we would like to briefly introduce to you here.

How to Use the Double Pointed Knitting Needles?

When knitting with double pointed needles, the hardest part is the cast on and the first three to four rows. After that it gets easier. So don't let that put you off. Take your time, be patient and you will surely succeed. The necessary number of stitches is cast on distributed over the 4 needles. Then you start knitting from one needle to the next in rounds with the fifth needle. If you are a beginner and want to make your work a little easier, we recommend not starting the first row with the pattern but simply knitting a row of right stitches. Make sure you keep the tension of the stitches the same and don't knit looser or tighter. This way you have an even stitch pattern. From the second row you can now start with the pattern of the desired work. When knitting socks, this is usually a 2 left 2 right pattern to knit a stretchy cuff that provides a better hold for the socks.

The more rows you knit, the easier it will be. When changing the needles, it is important to always ensure that the thread tension is maintained, otherwise the transitions will become visible. In the first few rows, the transition between the last and first needle will bother you a little as it doesn't close very well, but just ignore that, it's quite normal.

We hope that with our tips you will easily succeed in daring to use the Mindful Collection Double Pointed Knitting Needles and maybe knit your first pair of socks.

You will see a very special knitting experience with our Mindful Double Pointed Knitting Needles. Our knitting needles are not just a knitting instrument, but an instrument of mediation and balance.
