Needle Profile:
Pony Pearl Double-Pointed Needles

Pony Pearl DPNs
Close-up of Pony Pearl DPNs

Manufacturer

Pony

Material

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

Notes

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
