Recommended Double-Pointed Needles: FlexiFlips by Addi
For those wanting to start their sock journey, but who are frustrated with both double-pointed needles and Magic Loop - Addi FlexiFlips are the perfect in-between. This set consists of three needles with a small portion of circular cable in the middle that bows out to accommodate for the curve of your sock.
FlexiFlips require only two needles on your work at a time, as opposed to three or four with traditional double points. These needles also work for sleeves on small sweaters, tops of hats, and anywhere where you are doing small circumference knitting.
