I have the perfect needle gauge for you, great for travelling as it's tiny and will fit perfectly in your Cocoknits Accessory Roll. Julie from Cocoknits has designed her needle gauge based on those a jeweller would use to size diamonds. The result is a joyous rainbow stack of connected discs for identifying knitting needle sizes 2 - 10mm / US 0-15.
And because Cocoknits is committed to avoiding plastic wherever possible, they have made their Needle Gauge from PLA, a 100% biodegradable, plant-based plastic substitute!
The discs swivel out and click back together with tiny magnets (which makes it as much fun to play with as use) and the whole rainbow tool is small enough to pop into the Accessory Roll so you'll never leave home without it.
- Each disc is imprinted in both US and mm needle sizes from US 0-15 / 2-10mm
- Needle Gauge has 16 discs in total with a hole for the following metric sizes: 2mm, 2.25mm, 2.75mm, 3.25mm, 3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4mm, 4.5mm, 5mm, 5.5mm, 6mm, 6.5mm, 8mm, 9mm and 10mm
- Overall size (closed) is 2.5cm diameter x 4cm high (1" X 1.5")
How to Use:
Swivel out the plastic disc to access the hole and insert your needle. The smallest hole that your needle fits into is your needle size. If the needle is unable to be inserted, select the next size up, or if there is excess space, try the next size down.
- If your Needle Gauge accidentally gets wet, dry it off, then fan out the discs so they don't become stuck together as they dry. If this happens you should be able to force them apart again, but best to let them dry separately if possible.
- Extremely humid conditions can affect the material. To return it to its a pre-humid state, keep it in a temperate, drier area for 24-48 hours and allow it to acclimate with discs fanned out.
