Yes. Knitting needles, accompanied by yarn, are not subject to any security restrictions and are permitted in your carry-on luggage. However, this is at the airline’s discretion.
This item is not restricted, but you need to check with your airline as some prohibit knitting needles from carry-on.
You will be asked to relinquish all dangerous or prohibited items found in your carry-on luggage. If you refuse:
AvSec x-ray bags going onto aircraft to ensure there is nothing dangerous in them. If something comes up on the x-ray that needs checking, the bag will be opened, searched and any dangerous good or prohibited item will be removed, with a bag search notification form left within the bag.
If you want to retrieve an item that has been removed, please contact your airline as soon as possible. The airline will dispose of items within three to seven days, so the sooner you make contact, the better your chance of having the items returned to you. For more information, see:
