Extreme Knitting Needles
We offer the unwaxed as a cheaper tool for those on a budget – we strongly recommend that you coat unwaxed wood with a wood wax before use.
Any diameter x 500mm length will make a make up to a single bed throw in 10-14 hours or smaller floor rug in 2-4 hours - eg bath mat, bedside rug or small fireside rug.
Any diameter x 600mm length will make up to a double bed throw in 12-16 hours / medium size floor rug in 5-8 hours - eg for living room/large bedside/fireside rug.
Any diameter x 700mm length will make up to a king size bed throw in 16-22 hours / large floor rug in 9-12 hours – eg for living room/conservatory rugs. We find the 600 or 700 mm length tools are the MOST COMFORTABLE.
When Extreme Knitting you sit on a wide seat - such as a sofa - with the tools across your lap, your shoulders and neck relaxed. You work slowly and the cloth you are making grows fast.
All our tools are also excellent for making HAMMOCKS and FENCE panel pieces in strings and ropes. Depending on the multiples of strands you use you get approx the following STITCH SIZES: 15mm tools - 1.2mm—1.7mm (1/2” to 3/4”) 19mm tools - 1.7mm—2.5mm (3/4”to 1”) 24mm tools - 2.5 mm—3.5mm (1” to 1 1/2”) 27mm tools - 3.5 mm—4.5mm (1 1/2”- 2”)
DON’T FORGET to check out our other listings – we will be introducing new patterns and pattern booklets for using our Extreme Textiles Tools.

At the moment we are shipping only within the UK.
We miss our European customers and we continue to monitor the customs and trading requirements for sending wool and wood outside the UK. When this becomes possible we will happily open shop overseas.
