Hakea vittata, commonly known as the Hooked needlewood, is a shrub of the genus Hakea native to an area on the Eyre Peninsula and the Gawler Range in South Australia and small areas in eastern Victoria.

The lignotuberous shrub typically grows to a height of 0.1 to 2 metres (0 to 7 ft). It blooms from August to November and produces reddish-white flowers.

E. vittata has white pubescent branchlets with simple glabrescent leaves that are 2 to 8 centimetres (1 to 3 in) long and 0.8 to 1.5 millimetres (0.03 to 0.06 in) wide. Inflorescences are axillary with 8-14 flowers that eventually produce smooth woody brown ovate fruit that are 1.3 to 2.4 cm (0.5 to 0.9 in) long and 0.9 to 1.5 cm (0.35 to 0.59 in) wide.
