Size 50 Knitting Needles

Posted by chickachee ( on

Hi -

Can anyone tell me how big around a size 50 knitting needle is? I'd like to have hubby make me a pair, but I cannot find anything at any of the stores by me, so I can measure them. Diameter measurement would be just as helpful, although measurement around would probably be easier to get.

Any info you can give would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help.

They are 25mm and you can make them any length you want, but seems like 14" in a popular length.
