A jump needle is a hybrid needle combining a single point and circular needle together. The needle barrel has a standard length of 6” and is attached to a circular cord like our fixed circular knitting needle. The needle barrel swivels on the cord just like our circulars needles. To prevent the stitches from sliding off the end of the cord, we secure the end with one of our copper toppers. The jump needles are sold as a set of two needles, like a single point set. You may customize the length of the cords and select any two copper toppers for your ends. The jump needle is available in sizes US 2 – US 15.

Wood Options & Characteristics
We handcraft our hexagonal knitting needles using three sustainable North American hardwoods; walnut, cherry and maple. The maple is the lightest in color, the strongest, and when we hand sand the needles, because of the dense wood grain, it polishes up to be the slickest of the three woods. The maple will never be as slick as a metal needle and the hexagonal shape keeps the stitches where you want them to be. The cherry wood is a medium honey color and is the middle range of slickness, and the walnut is the darkest color, chocolate like, and has the most grab. All three woods are smooth and the differences are fairly minor. The size 2 is our smallest size and we can only make the size 2’s in the maple wood. Sizes 3, 4 and 5 we make in maple and cherry, and the size 6 and larger we can add in the walnut. We use 100% natural Michigan beeswax to condition the wood during the sanding process. There are no laminates or toxic finishes.
