Hello - I wish to knit a poncho which calls for a 7mm circular needle. I have googled but not found what the US equivalent needle size is - can anyone help answering this? Many thanks in advance.

http://www.yarnfwd.com/needleconv.html There is no direct conversion.Try US 10 1/2 or 11 to get gauge.

Many thanks for the quick response - this is exactly what I gleaned from google as well. I would be curious to knit with 7mm needles. Guess the best I can do is just match gauge - knit loosely should do it.

According to the needle gauge that I received with my Addi Interchangeable set, it indicates that a 7.0 mm is 10.75 US size needle.

What pattern are you doing? A link please. The right needle size is the one you get gauge with. Or depending on the pattern exact gauge may not be crucial.

That is a new size for me - where would one find such a needle size?

This is an old written pattern - no link, sorry. But since it is a poncho the gauge is not as critical. Once I swatch out the yarn I will probably be able to get away with size 11.

I actually got that size from hiya hiya needles on line. And I was knitting a poncho too so I suspect we were doing the same one.

Funny, I have three pairs of old straight needles that are size 10.75. Haven't used them in years & now use circulars most of the time. That size was easier to find back when I learned to knit in the 70's, lol!

Knitpicks size gauges translates 7MM to US 10 3/4 which probably does not exist. Your choices would be either a US size 10 1/2 or a US 11. Do a gauge swatch to see which size gets you the pattern gauge

US 7 needle is a 4.5 mm size... while a 7 mm size would be 10.75 which might be next to impossible to find in the US. However it seems that ChiaoGoo circular needles do come in that size. Handsome Fibers is a good source... reasonable prices and free shipping within the US.
