Oversize Knitting Needles

40mm Knitting Needles

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

These beautiful pine 40mm knitting needles are perfect for knitting your own super chunky projects or giving as a gift to an enthusiastic knitting who’s up for a challenge!

Delivery within the UK is free for all orders over £60 and costs £4 for orders under £60. Speedy delivery & in-store collection available too!

Handmade in England these giant 40mm knitting needles are ideal for your huge knitted creations. At just under 1 meter long they can knit blankets over 2 meters wide (and as long as you want!) They are designed to be used with Lauren Aston Designs’ Giant Yarn which is available here.

We recommend using the 40mm Knitting Needles on the sofa (or sitting on a low seat or stool so that they can rest easily on the floor) this will help support the needles and you can take the weight of the knitting on your lap.

Cable Needle (DPN): If you’re really ready to up your giant knitting game you could get a Giant Cable Knitting Needle. It can be a bit of a challenge to knit with on such a huge scale but the result is always worth it! Plus the knitting goes by so quickly you don’t need to struggle for long!

These needles are really fun to work with and are great if you already have the wool. If you’re starting from scratch you may want to try the Knit Kits – Each of my items is hand processed after its been knitted up which helps bond all the fibers together and essentially is the quality finish on each item rather than simply knitting and leaving it. I’ve developed an at-home version of this process which is available only in the knit kits. If you’re after all the information and everything you need to know in one go then the knit kits offer it all.
