Kinki Amibari - Seeknit Bamboo Swivel Circular Knitting Needles - 24

Founded in 1916, Kinki Amibari is the manufacturer of Japan's finest bamboo knitting needles. Our needles are produced from specially selected Japanese bamboo of only the finest variety. They are superior in flexibility, durability, and lightness, and they are also warm to the touch. The perfectly formed tips are made by highly skilled craftsmen.

Kinki Amibari's Shirotake circular needles with swivel cord connectors will elevate your knitting experience, making it more smooth and comfortable! The cable is flexible and the needles are light which helps to ensure that your knitting tension is perfect and your hands don't feel fatigued.

For knitting small diameter tubes (socks, sleeves, gloves, hats, cowls and vests), some knitters prefer using two circular needles or magic loop method instead of multiple double pointed needles to work in the round. 

  • All of Kinki Amibari's circular needles feature a flexible rotating joint that prevents twisting, allowing for smooth knitting.
  • Circular needles will save time on tube knitting projects compared to using straight needles.
  • Circular needles can be used for all tube knitting projects such as sweaters and hats, and for other non-circular projects such as shawls.
  • Circular needles with short cords can be used for small projects such as mittens, socks, sleeves, baby hats, wrist warmers, and leg warmers.
