US#2 and US #2.5 (3mm) Circular Knitting Needles

US#2 - US#2.5 (3mm)

US#2 and US #2.5 (3mm) Circular Knitting Needles

This size of needle is a 3mm.   Some manufacturers call a 3mm a US#2, and others will call it a US#2.5.  In this range of 2.75mm to 3mm, you will find a disagreement of US# designations.   My advise is to look at the mm sizing and choose either what your stash at home is, or make your best guess.   Honestly a .25mm difference is very minute.

This size of knitting needle is commonly used with Fingering [1] weight yarns.   Its' gauge generally runs between 6.75 to 8 stitches per inch.   This can vary immensely with the particular characteristics of the yarn, and if the knitter is a tight or loose knitter.

TIP:   Sort into shade # order and the needles will sort by length.
