Try It Set - Caspian and Nickel

$14.99


Our Try It Needle set gives you the chance to try both our wood and nickel plated interchangeable tips, in our most common sizes. The Try It Needle Set contains one set of size 6 (4mm) Caspian wood tips, one set of size 7 (4.5mm) Nickel Plated tips, one 24" cable, one 40" cable, four end caps, and one metal tightening key. This set is handy for knitters who already have an interchangeable needle set, but tend to work on multiple projects that require the same common needles sizes. This is also a great gift for new knitters who want to find their favorite needle finish, and buy needles that would work with many types of projects and yarn.

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

I bought this set to try before buying a whole set of circular needles. The metal needles were fine but the join section caught too much for my liking. The caspian needles were a disaster. I started knitting and the gauge seemed smaller than I usally get for that size. When I measured the needle tips on my metal susan bates they were not size but 5. Also the caspian tips came off from the metal body. I immediately called Knit Pick, and since they have excellent customer service, was issued a new set of caspian needles plus a knit picks needle gauge for free. Unfortunately the new needles have once again come off their metal base. I bought a set of Chiagoo circulars instead. I gave this set a fair instead of a poor because of the wonderful customer service KP provides.

I used both sets of needle tips. Very smooth and very fast knitting. I prefer the CASPIAN to the Nickel, but only on a basis of weight. The nickel are a bit heavy for me. After years of hand crafting I find that my hands are sensitive to such things. Unfortunately, I broke my Caspian needle tips when I fell, 3 days after they arrived. I was sick. The size 6 is the size I use to make dishcloths and really liked how they knit, how they handled the cotton, and further I was able to knit quickly with them. I will have to get more in the future.

I am a beginner. The. CASPIAN and NICKEL TRY IT set was my first purchase of needles. I loved them the minute I started using them, they are smooth, the NEEDLE tips are just right. In fact I just purchased the CASPIAN Interchangeable needles set. I can't wait to get them.
