Our Knitters Pride Trendz Interchangeable Circular Deluxe Set has been hard to get a hold of, and for a good reason. This extremely affordable set is a gateway drug for the new knitter into the experience of owning a quality set of needles. The set comes with 8 pairs of 4.5” tips in US sizes 4-11, along with 4 cables in 24”, 32”, 40” and 47” lengths.
The Trendz feature an opaque color coded, lightweight acrylic needle with slightly more grab than the other materials. It features the same smooth join and supple cord you would expect from the Knitters Pride line. The colors help differentiate sizes and contrast nicely with yarn. I can see these strong needles holding up to some serious work hours.
For young knitters this is a great material to practice on, as opposed to a slicker needle, with an ample point that won’t snag yarn or be too dull for inexperienced hands. This would also be ideal for the young knitter because of the whimsical packaging; cheerfully colored needles in a bright zippered storage case to keep all your parts from getting lost.
For the price point there’s nothing standing between you and your own set of interchangeable needles. Still not sure these are the needles for you? Try the Comby Interchangeable Sampler Set to try out various materials and make your own choice! The Comby set lets you play with one each of the Nova, Dreamz and Trendz needles. Although I don’t know if the choice will be easy, all of these needles are unique and lovely to work with!
