Nickel Plated Interchangeable knitting needles

After years of frustration with the flaws of expensive name brand needles, Knit Picks has finally designed their own interchangeable needles. Affordable attractive and practical, put a pair into you hands and you’ll never want to put them down.

Not only do their needle tips attach easily, they rest flush with the cable for snag free knitting- the way a join should be. Knit Picks has designed the perfect point, tips sharp enough for lace knitting, gradually tapered fro precision and control. Whether you knit loosely or tightly you’ll find that their tips slip effortlessly into stitches.

Knit Picks cables are thin and flexible so they move with you and won’t fight back. Better yet, they won’t kink when you stuff them into your project bag, and they are available in size’s up to 60″.

We love their versatility, use them as straight or circular needles. No more buying a new set of needles for each project!

Interchangeable Cables for Circular Knitting NeedlesCables for Interchangeable Needles Knit Picks Options

The smooth cable join lets your stitches slide around your knitting needles with no snags. The long threaded join along with the tightening hole make for extra security that the cables and tips of the knitting needles will stay connected. And the flexible cable has very little memory so you can start knitting immediately. Simply unscrew the needle tips and screw on the cable caps to keep your knitting safe when your needle tips are required elsewhere. Lace knitters will love that they can tie a piece of scrap yarn through the tiny hole in the cable end (used for the tightening key) and thread a lifeline through their lace at regular intervals while they are knitting. Available in 24″, 32″, 40″, 47″ and 60″ lengths. (Final cable length is achieved when both needles and cables are secured together.) Set includes two cables, four end caps and tightening key.

Knit Picks Fixed Circular Needles

Nickel Circular Needles Knit PicksThe very smallest needle sizes and shortest circular needle lengths do not accommodate the interchangeable screw feature of our Options needles. For this reason, we rounded out our complete needle product line with these durable fixed circular needles in all the sizes and lengths that are not available as interchangeable circular needles. Our classic circular needles have the same super flexible cable with secure and smooth cable to needle join, slick nickel-plated needle surface and tapered tips as the Options needles.

The metric sizing system is more precise than the US sizing system. We offer two US size 1 – equivalent to 2.25mm and 2.50mm and two US size 2 – equivalent to 2.75mm and 3.00mm.

The 16″ needle tips are 3 3/8 inches long, allowing for an easily formed complete circle for small circumference knitting. All of the other needle tips (24″, 32″, 40″ and 47″) are 5 1/8 inches long. Since our cable is super flexible, the Magic Loop method of sock knitting can be accomplished with the 32″ needles for one sock at a time. For two socks at a time, try either the 40″ or 47″ needles.
