Make a yarn ball anytime! Or make a HUGE yarn ball by wrapping up an enemy.
— Flavor Text • Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn

Knitting Needles is a Ravel Ability in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn.

General Information

This Ravel Ability allows Kirby to create Yarn Balls without using an enemy or object. In addition, when an enemy or object is wrapped up with the Yarn Whip, the Yarn Balls created are around twice as large as usual and strike through enemies and most objects. Like other Ravel Abilities, Knitting Needles' Ravel Ball can be discarded or lost like a Copy Ability, causing it to bounce around the stage like an Ability Star.

Knitting Needles is comparable to the Throw Copy Ability.


Move Controls Description
Yarn Ball B Kirby performs a Yarn Whip attack, and if it does not come in contact with anything, Kirby creates a yarn ball.
Big Yarn Ball B (near target) Kirby performs a Yarn Whip attack, grabs an enemy or yarn object, then forms a big Yarn Ball. This yarn ball will always have the piercing property, and will not take on any other properties, such as homing ability, multiple projectiles, or glowing in the dark.
