Knitting needles 

Knitting needles have a long shaft and taper at their end. The long shaft holds the active stitches of the fabric, to prevent them from unraveling, whereas the tapered ends are used to form new stitches. The size is described first by its diameter and secondly by its length. Double pointed and Circular needles work on the same basis. 

The size of the new stitch is determined in large part by the diameter of the knitting needle used. All patterns work to a given number of stitches and rows per 10cm and by changing the diameter of the needle the required number of stitches/rows are achieved
