My Favorite Brands / Types of Knitting Needles (For Beginners & Personal Favorites)

This blog post is for all you maker's who have asked (especially on Instagram), what my favorite type / brands of knitting needles are. Here we go! :-D

1. Favorite Brands / Types of Knitting Needles for Beginner Knitters

My favorite type of knitting needles for beginner knitters would definitely have to be made out of bamboo or wood. The texture of these type of needles is perfect (in my opinion) because they give the yarn more "resistance", and thus the yarn will not slide so easily off the needles, when practicing all those new knit stitches. ;-D

Don't get me wrong, I do love my plastic & metal knitting needles, but for beginner knitters who need to take each new stitch slowly and carefully, they may be just a bit to "slippery". 

My favorite brand of bamboo knitting needles is the Clover Takumi Brand. You can also find wooden / bamboo knitting needles in bulk on and as well. These bulk buys are perfect for beginners, because you will be able to get multiple sizes to practice with, at a quarter of the price of buying needles individually at the craft store. ;-D

2. My Personal Favorite Types of Knitting Needles

Circular Knitting Needles: Clover Takumi Brand(Bamboo)

Straight Knitting Needles: Clover Takumi brand(Bamboo), Loops and Threads brand (Plastic), Wool And The Gang Brand (Wooden), Lions Brand (Plastic), BettaKnit Brand (Wooden)

Double Pointed Knitting Needles: Clover Takumi brand(Bamboo)

...and those are my favs! ;-D 

Please keep in mind that these may not be the knitting needles best suited for every knitter, but are merely the brands / types I like best for my own particular knitting style.

3. Where to Buy

You can really buy knitting needles just about anywhere, but a few of my favorite places include:,, JoAnn's Craft Store, Michael's Craft Store, and Hobby Lobby. You can also find select brands / types of knitting needles at Walmart.
