Options Interchangeable Circular Knitting Needle Cables - Purple single pack


The smooth cable join lets your stitches slide around your knitting needles with no snags while the long threaded join ensures that your cables and knitting needle tips stay securely in place.

Additionally, the flexible purple 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 lacework at regular intervals while they are knitting.

Interchangeable needle tips are available in sizes US 4 (3.50mm) through US 17 (12.00mm). The Options Interchangeable Needle Set includes sizes US 4 (3.50mm) through US 11 (8.00mm) plus two each of the 24" and 32" cables in a handy flexible organizer. Or, view the entire Options Interchangeable Knitting Needle family.

Includes one cable, 2 end caps and one cable key.

The sizing of the Knit Picks interchangeable cables refer to the total length achieved when the needles tips are attached to the cables.

I love these cables and have had no problems, but please, offer a shorter cable, 18 or 20 inch.

Sturdy cables but not flexible enough to use for magic loop method. All needles are awesome though. I have Caspian, Rainbow and Nickle plated. I found the Caspian cables easier to work with, seemed more pliable.

Nice joins, but they can fall apart. Never leave on a trip without a spare.

I wish they would offer one size smaller -- like a 20 inch. I'm making cowls, and sometimes the 24" is too long, but the 16" circulars -- the needle part is too short, I'm not comfortable knitting with them.

I love the needles; they're beautiful to look at and a pleasure to knit with. The cables not so much. I've purchased 4 additional cables as the cable breaks at the end by the metal before finishing an afghan.

I bought these cables to use with my knitter's pride mini-set. I LOVE them. They are soft and flexible unlike knitter's pride which I found too stiff. The caps are metal lines which I really like a lot. I will absolutely have to invest in some Options needles tips next!

A couple years ago these cables were fantastic. As of mid 2013 they're not that great. Stiff enough that I can't magic loop, and there's so much memory that they never uncoil all the way. Very irritating to work with.

I love these cables. I have found nothing I don't like about them. I love that the end caps have a metal insert, not plastic, so they will last for a very long time. I love that the cable is so flexible, you can use the smallest cable size easily, and not constantly fighting with it. Thanks very much.

I can't believe no one has written a review extolling the virtues of these cables! I love them, and I love the interchangeable tips. I have to keep buying more cables because I leave in-progress projects on them and steal the needles -- for 1.99, it's worth not having to thread back through all my stitches! Love them!
