Kintting Needles


  • Pencil Sharpener
  • Sandpaper
    • 60
    • 100
    • 150
    • 220
    • 600
    • 1500
  • Dowels (2 ~6"-12" x 1/8"-1/4")
Sharpen the end of the dowel until it is very pointy. Sand with the 60-grit sandpaper until the point is rounded and also knock the sharp shoulder off of the reverse end. Once everything is shaped (mostly pointy on one end and a gradual transition coming back about an inch or so on the dowel, bump up the grit up until the needle is smooth.


12 inch dowels are a little cumbersome to learn on. The smaller the needle, the finer the knit. The larger the needle the looser the knit. 

Next Steps:
Need to seal with beeswax or oil.
