Size 7, 4.50 mm
The bone needles are joined by two 5" pieces.
Before the 20th century fine knitting was done on steel knitting needles but bone was the material of choice for coarse knitting. Bone needles are very smooth to work with, yet prevent the work from sliding off of them and they become even smoother with use. The 10" length size 7 works well for knitting Scottish Bonnets, no more stitches falling off the ends! The 7" in size 5 or 6 works well for knitting mittens. Complete your authentic knitting kit with 100% wool knitting yarn. In The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, London of 1803, "JOHN THOMPSON, alias KELLY, was indicted for making an assault, on the King's highway, upon Mary Hurst, widow, on the 27th of May, putting her in fear, and taking from her person a set of knitting-needles, value 2s."
