The LYKKE Indigo 9cm (3.5") Interchangeable Needle Set is an integral part of my kit bag, and I love it. I use it as has my hat knitting kit, using the cords for 40cm (16"). I'm a big hat knitter, so this is a well-used and loved set of needles. It's not limited to just hats; it's great for other projects that call for longer cords.
Named after the Norwegian word for happiness, LYKKE combines high-quality materials and thoughtful design to produce beautiful, durable, happy-making needles. Made of birchwood, they're soft and warm to the touch and smooth on the yarn.
The 9cm (3.5") interchangeable set comes with 9 pairs of needles:
- 3.25mm - US 3
- 3.50mm - US 4
- 3.75mm - US 5

- 5.00mm - US 8
- 5.50mm - US 9
- 6.00mm - US 10
- 6.50mm - US 10.5
The 7mm (US 10.75) needles are not included in the set; they're available to purchase separately.
Also included are the following:
- 2 cords for 40cm (16")

I love love love these needles. The shorter length means I can work necks and arms without using magic loop, and they are very comfortable to hold. The order arrived super quickly and was beautifully packaged- felt like a real treat to open.
Love love love these needles. They so nice to work with and have the perfect amount of grip for my knitting. The smaller needles make them nice to hold in my small hands and the little case is perfect for sotring everything! They came beautifully wrapped and delivery was very quick! The customer service I've received from Mark and the team is second to none! Super helpful and quick to reply to any queries. The Needle Store is my new favourite go to for all my knitting accessory needs! Thanks so much for everything Mark!
Thanks so much Jenifer for the review, and it's my pleasure. I'm super glad you like your new set as well as our service. Great to hear! Thank you for taking the time to share. Best wishes - Mark
My eagerly awaited needles just arrived today and I am absolutely thrilled! I thought they looked great in the pictures on here but they are really even better. I highly recommend these and the needle store who made the purchase so easy. They were packaged really well in a small box which had me jumping up and down even before opening it!
They feel so nice in my hands for knitting and I can't wait to get going on a hat! The feeling of the pouch is also great and just like having a purse in your hand which would easily fit inside a handbag or knitting bag. The little pocket for the cables and accessories is great, keeping everything together. Even the velcro to stand up the needle holder section is great at making accessing the needles easy even if you have big fingers or reduced function from carpal tunnel (like myself).
I am already planning my next purchases - It's OK to replace your entire needle collection isn't it?
