I could tell MY favorites and least favorites, but as you can see there is no one best needle. Personal preference plays a huge role in needle selection and the best way to learn this is through experience.

At a few online stores you can get small sampler sets which is a great way to test.

Most knitters end up preferring circulars because you can knit flat and in the round with them.
