I want to buy size 4 and up dpn's and I can only find them in 8 inch lengths. I want them to be the nickel plated ones. I went to Knit picks and they don't have them in the 4 inch size.
Thanks a bunch,
you can knit baby socks with 8 inchers. it's better to get the longer ones because you can have as little as one stitch on a DPN no matter the length, but if your needles are too short, you won't be able to use them for bigger projects

One thing to consider when looking at them is that 4 inches is about the width of your hand. I find it very uncomfortable to try to hold those small needles in my hands when they are that short. I would guess that it is most likely that the ones you WILL find in that length are wooden.
