My preferred way to knit socks is on tiny 9-inch circular knitting needles like these. From tip to tip they are 25 cm long, which is 9.75 inches. Some packages are labelled as 9 inches and some are labelled as 10 inches.
Knitter's Pride Dreamz have a flexible black cord, smooth joins and wood needles and tips.
Quantities and sizes available may vary. Please select your size from the drop-down menu.
Price is for one package (contains one fixed circular needle with two tips). Finished sock shown in the photos is not included.
