Happy New Year! Today's review is on Knitter's Pride's Nova Platina Chunky Interchangeable Needle Set. These interchangeable needles are perfect for using heavier weight yarn in larger projects! If you're wanting to make smaller things like beanies, you'll need different needle tips. All their "special" needles are 4" short tips giving your overall measurement 16". The smallest circumference for this set is 24".
This beautiful set comes in a handy, basic thick plastic pouch. There are 3 needle sizes from US 13 (9mm), US 15 (10mm), and US17 (12mm), 2 cords to make 24" & 32" with tips, 4 end caps, and 2 cord keys.
For me personally, I prefer metal tips and knitting with chunky yarn so this is the perfect set for me!
If you don't know the basics, you can definitely check out my YouTube Channel for beginner's How to Knit Video Tutorials. Don't see what you need? Let me know and I'll add it to my list! There's so many videos out there, I know you will find the one that's right for you!
So instead of just a review, I've used the needles to provide a stitch tutorial. See video below! This stitch is used in my latest beanie design.
