Boye Yarn Needles are Perfect!

Pros:Generously sized eye makes threading easier, sturdier than plastic

Cons:None

The Bottom Line: Love these needles by Boye!  Very handy tool for those who knit or crochet.


When doing a lot of knitting or darning, having a good yarn needle is very important.  I've been using a yarn needle for years, but I gave it to a young gal who is taking knitting lessons from me.

I found the perfect replacement at my local Michael's craft store.  The size 13 Boye Yarn Needles come in a pack of two, securely enclosed in a plastic package.  I actually keep my needles in a small wooden case that used to be my grandmothers, but if you don't have such a case you can keep these needles in the plastic case they came in.

I use these needles all the time.  Whatever I knit I always have to weave in the beginning and ending tails of thread.  This doesn't work well when using a sharp pointed needle because I can split the yarns.  The Boye size 13 Yarn Needles have a nice blunt end that works perfectly.

These needles measure 2 3/4" long and have a generous sized eye for threading the yarn.  The eye hole is 3/4" long and 3/16" wide.  Although yarn is harder to thread through a needle than sewing thread, I have found an easy way to do so.  I fold my yarn over the end of the needle and then pull it off, holding the two ends of yarn tightly in my fingers.  I then thread this doubled over section of yarn through the eye of the needle.  This way I am not working with the end (or tip) of the yarn that can fray or unravel.

Boye Yarn Needles are distributed by the Simplicity Creative Group in Antioch, Tennessee.  The small card that was enclosed in the package does not say what they are made of, but they are metal and I believe they are made of steel.  The pack of two cost me around $3.00, but these will last forever.

The size 13 needles are the perfect size for finishing off those knitting or crocheting projects and I highly recommend them.  I have a plastic yarn needle that came with my Knit Quick Loom, but I really prefer these metal needles.

~~Special thanks to Dawn for adding this for me~~
