Addi Rocket Squared needles have ergonomic comfort, grip texture, and the slick Turbo finished they are known for. For some, square knitting needles can help ease pain and strain while knitting and for others they are just more comfortable than standard round needles. The Addi design is not only squared, but also has more rounded edges and a subtle texture to help with hand grip and stitch grip. They are rust-proof, with a plated finish that is very slick for fast knitting. The tips are connected by a pliable blue cable with a smooth join so that the yarn slides easily.
