Addi Rockets take your knitting to new speeds! Here you have the sharper, longer Lace point that so many have come to love and addi’s stellar Turbo plating. Pick up your stitches with ease, and move them along quick as can be.
When addi first produced the Rocket circulars, they were only available in the smaller sizes — so they were called “Sock Rockets.” Now that Rockets are available all the way up to a US 13, they’re simply called “addi Turbo Rockets” — but some of the older packaging still says “Sock Rockets.” They’re the same great needles, with or without the “Sock”!
addi Rockets are now coated with white bronze, rather than nickel. The process to produce the bronze-coated needles uses less electricity and water, and is more environmentally-friendly; the new finish is also great news for knitters who are allergic to nickel!
Please note that all sizes US 0 and smaller have a gold cord while all other sizes have a blue cord. Per industry standard, all circular knitting needles are measured from tip to tip. For example, a 32″ circular needle is 32 inches from one needle tip to the other.
Actual needle tip lengths:
16″ and 20″ circulars: 3.5 in/8.8 cm
24″ and above: 5 in/12.8 cm
PLEASE NOTE: The US 3 and 4 circulars are temporarily backordered at the factory in Germany; we expect more in mid-July. You may still order now and we'll ship as soon as the new supply arrives.
