Options Interchangeable Nickel Plated Circular Knitting Needle Set
Featuring smooth joins, perfectly tapered tips and flexible cables, this set includes 9 of our bestselling needle tips and 2 sizes of cables - all of which are stored in a handy vinyl case. Two small cable keys are included, which allow you to tighten your needle tips to the cables. Working on multiple projects that call for the same needle size? Use the included endcaps to safely store your project as you start the next.
Our nickel-plated needles have a slick, glass-like surface which allows your stitches to move freely while the hollow brass tube is extremely lightweight for hours of comfortable knitting.
Looking to expand your interchangeable knitting needle set? We have additional sizes of both needle tips and interchangeable cables available for even more options. Pro tip: The sizing of the cables refer to the total length achieved when the needle tips are attached to the cables.

“I'm going to cut right to the punchline: the Knit Picks Options set has earned a permanent place in my knitting bag. Why? 1. The tips are pointier than any other needle I've ever used. They will slide right through a strand of yarn if you're not paying attention, but mostly they're just a lovely, precise tool to work with. 2. The tips screw on to the cables and don't come loose until you unscrew them. 3. The cable/tip join is smooth. 4. The cable is VERY thin, flexible and doesn't fight back.” Knitty, Fall 2006
“I keep one of those Knit Picks interchangeable sets (with both wood and metal) in my suitcase for knitting emergencies.” www.Yarnharlot.com, February 2009
“I took the plunge and purchased the Knit Picks Options nickel plated needle set. Boy, howdy, did these come in handy! Not only were the needles glossy smooth and the joins nearly undetectable, but the spare cables handily served as stitch holders as well. I love the way the cables flex.” www.azurerocket.blogspot.com, March 2009
“I like the Knit Picks needles for my speed knitting because they have very special long and lean tips and especially sharp points which are essential in speed knitting.” Miriam Tegels, World’s Fastest Knitter
“I use the Knit Picks Options nickel plated circular needle set, and I love them. The joins are smooth and the needles are easy on the hands, making the knitting so much more enjoyable.” Kelly Z., Knit Picks customer
"I want to express how much I enjoy your store and your podcasts. The podcasts have been a source of information, inspiration, enthusiasm, personal sharing and humor. Thank you for introducing me to so many wonderful knitters, books and techniques. Your interchangeable needles are the best to my mind." Margaret K., Knit Picks customer
“For years the only needles I wanted to use were [your competitors]; expensive [your competitors]. Then I tried your nickle plated needles at a fair and reasonable price and they are every bit as good as the competition. Perhaps even better as the cable seems to be softer and more flexible. Thank you for these wonderful needles.” Lindy B., Knit Picks customer
"I've been a customer of yours from before you sold your own brand of yarn. When you came out with your own interchangeable needle set I was a bit skeptical. I'd been using [your competitors] needles for quite a while and was happy with them. I have to admit I scoffed at the idea of a tiny wrench to tighten the cable/needle join. But I discovered the problem with [your competitors] needles is that plastic wears out. I'ma very "active" knitter and often I'd be knitting away and suddenly the tip and cable would separate and I'd have to scramble to pick up stitches. This started happening pretty regularly. It wasn't just a faulty batch of cables and tips either. Anyway, I then started knitting cautiously, which is the wrong thing to do: never be timid in your endeavors. So I decided to try your needles, tiny wrenches and all. I think they're great. I can furiously knit away while I'm watching a 1950's sci-fi movie and never lose any stitches. So I'd just like to say, I was wrong to scoff." Sara B., Knit Picks Customer
"When I discovered the Knit Picks Options, I thought I couldn't buy the entire set, so I tried a few points and cables, and fell in love. I soon discovered that I COULD buy the entire set. About that time the Harmony wood needle tips came out, and I purchased a few in larger sizes for use with my bulkier weight yarns. Love them too. When I saw the straights come out, I thought, "Oh, no, I can't resist!" Before I could purchase a set, one of my good friends at work bought me a pair as a retirement gift. And I had never even told her that I wanted them. Though I did turn her on to Knit Picks, as she is a beginning knitter, and needed to be pointed in the right direction. She is the second of my work friends that I told about Knit Picks, and both are sold.
The quality is too high and the prices much too reasonable to go anywhere else." Susan, Knit Picks Customer
"Before I left Toronto in 2007 a friend of mine offered to include a set of nickel-plated, interchangeable circular knitting needles for me with her order. She gave me the set of needles when they arrived, I moved to Spain and didn't unpack my knitting until last month. At which point I finally took the circular needle set out of its' original packaging and proceeded to continue with my cardigan I began 1-1/2 years ago. It felt wonderful! I don't know what I was waiting for.
Much to my surprise the circulars from Knit Picks are absolutely wonderful to use. They are lightweight, have nicely pointed tips, very easy to change sizes and the flexible cables don't have a mind of their own -- so easy to use!" Nora B., Knit Picks Customer
