Oddly, this size is a hole on one of my needle gauges, but it isn't available in the USA. So, I was in the UK recently and picked up a 24" and 40" Addi Turbo in this size.

Why don't we have this size here? It's a huge jump from 10.5 to 11.

Anyway, adding these sizes to my collection increases gauge possibilities!

I have a very old pair of Addi Turbos in this size - dull tip, thick plasticy cable, but I still use them sometimes because it is a great size. Enjoy them!

Knitpicks sells the 10.75 needle for their intrchangeables. I am not sure if they carry it in their fixed circulars or straights.

I have Trish's addi 10.5. I don't use large needles, however I may need it one day.

7mm has been a standard size outside the US for ever (UK size 2). I remember seeing a post on Ravelry that Knitpicks has started stocking them. Interesting that my Knitpicks options set came with a 7mm when the US company was saying they weren't being manufactured.

If you can't find one locally, most sites in UK, Europe, Australia, NZ will be able to supply one.

Like I said, I have two circs, 24" and 40", in this size. They have already proved their usefulness. And Addis are the best, in my mind.

I found some Addi's in a clearance bin that were both of the sizes between 10.5 and 11. If you're going after gauge in that needle range, there is just waaaay too much difference between those two US sizes. It's nice to have these in my arsenal of needles.

We stock that size, using both the Addi and Hiya. I will say that not many folks ask for it.

I have Pony circs and Daisy straights in 10.75, and both were purchased in the Washington DC area. Love both of them!

I am a Rep for The Skacel Collection in AZ,NM,TX. We do carry the 10.75 size needles in our collection. Check with your LYS for this product. When seeking proper gauge for your project this size often comes in handy.

I have this size in Addi Turbo. I bought it at a shop in Ann Arbor, MI years ago.

I'm sitting here looking at a 60" Addi Turbo Lace 7mm/10.75 needle purchased last summer from my LYS in Rehoboth, DE. It was a special order item, but they are indeed available in the US.

Ceil!
These are available in the USA. Contact your favorite authorized addi dealer and ask for them! If they do not have them, they can certainly order them from us. They are stocked from a 16" to a 60" in both Turbo and Lace versions!

I own Crystal Palace 10.75 purchased at my LYS over ten years ago. I have used them many times for projects that call for chunky yarns. When bulky yarn styles are in style,they become available. Knitting cycles over and over, stay tuned!

I did not realize this was an unusual size, but I guess it is. I picked up a pair of 10.75 when I was in Iceland, and it didn't occur to me that it wasn't a standard size at the time. Now that you mention it, I haven't seen any patterns using it. I did find it very useful on a project where I needed to adjust gauge and move the needle size down from an 11.
