The Knitpro Needle Gauge is a really handy little tool for all knitters, allowing you to accurately check your needle size in both metric and US. How many pairs of needles do we all have with the numbers no longer visible? no longer a problem. Especially useful for double pointed and circular needles which are not always marked at all.
You can also compare metric to US sizes if you wish to knit from a pattern with the other needle sizes in.
As you would expect from Knitpro it is a well made, sturdy item and not only has ruler in inches and mm but also a very handy marker for that all important 4", 10cm. square.
Measures needles from 2.00 - 12mm, 0-17 US.
"A very sturdy gauge, with a handy magnifier marked with 10 cm / 4" line for tension squares, making counting stitches a breeze. I use knitpro needles and had an inexpensive needle gauge which I found didn't agree with the sizes on my needles regardless of the needle brand, this seems to be accurate. Covering sizes from 2mm to 12mm with US equivalent sizes noted as well and with cm and inches measure as well. A must have accessory for the knitter especially those who use double pointed or circular needles as they don't usually have the size marked on them."
"this is great as some of my needles are in the old sizing or have lost their printed number so this is great at finding the right needle for the right job."
"I would recommend anyone with knitting needles to buy this if no. has come off holes are perfect size."
"A very handy gadget for my knitting bag; everyone should have one. The built in ruler is an added bonus."
"Delighted with this handy tool as I inherited many needles from my Great Aunt, all in the old imperial sizes, plus many also without numbers at all, so this has solved my problems and I can be sure of finding the right needles for today's patterns."
"I have a large collection of double pointed and circular needles that are unmarked and have lost their original packaging so this Knitpro Needle gauge is perfect as it has sorted them all out. Sturdy and well made, love the 4" magnified marker too, makes working tension squares much easier"
