Needle Profile:
Pony Pearl Double-Pointed Needles

Pony Pearl DPNs
Close-up of Pony Pearl DPNs




Natural wood-based plastic; sizes US 0-8 have steel reinforcement in core.


Like Pony's single-pointed siblings, these needles are spring steel-reinforced in smaller sizes. The benefit is added strength; the drawback is a potentially annoying tendency to rattle.

These needles have a short, abbreviated taper and a dull tip.

The plastic surface provides a moderate amount of friction for better stitch control.

They come in bright, trendy colors.

I wish I had read your review about these dpns before purchasing a set in US size 1 which I wanted for socks. Although the needles feel fine in the hand, their blunt points make it a pain to work with finer yarns, especially if you are trying to maintain a tight tension. I think for this kind of work I will stick to the relatively inexpensive aluminum needles with sharper points which makes it easier to pick up tighter stitches in finer yarn." pkegh, 5/10/01

The pattern says to pick up 140 stitches evenly along the button band of your cardigan, and your mind goes numb trying to do the calculations. Lo! There's an app for that!
