It is easy to select the right tool for your next project. The number of the needle corresponds to the size of the eye and thickness of the needle. The sizes get larger as their number gets smaller. A darning needle is simply a really large big needle. It isn’t very sharp, and has an eye on it that is large enough to thread with yarn or embroidery floss. Use a large darning needle if you are repairing a sock made with a thick yarn, like one that someone hand-knit for you, or comfy winter socks. For the thinner, store-bought socks (like those favorite argyles that you just can’t toss out) use a smaller needle.
