Of all the knitting tools I’ve encountered, square needles are the most enigmatic. For knitters who experience pain or mobility issues in their hands and arms, they’re hailed as life-changing. But for others, they’re viewed with suspicion. Are there gauge issues with square needles? Do they feel weird in your hands? Are they slower than conventional round needles? Are they worth the investment?
To find some answers, I went to Canada’s very own source for square knitting needles: kollage SQUARE™.
What I discovered was a company as unique as the knitting and crochet tools that they make.
