US0000 / 1.25mm DPN
Double Pointed Needles, or DPNs, are used for knitting in the round, when working a small number of stitches, or as short single pointed needles. As the name implies, they are pointed on both ends, allowing the knitter to work on/off either end.
US 0000 / 1.25 mm Double Pointed Needles currently available at Darn Yarn:
Karbonz - Carbon fiber needles from Knitter's Pride, currently we only carry these in the smaller diameter sizes because of those sock knitters among us who snap needles in half when knitting. ;) These needles are super strong and light.
