I've decided this is a year of hat-making, and I thought shorts would be easier for me than fiddling with DPNs. I ordered a size 6 and a short cable to try out the idea. I was right -- I'm making my first hat with a 16", and it's going great! I will need to get more sizes

I loved my other Caspian interchangeable set (regular) and plan to order the full short set soon. In the meantime, I needed a 6mm and decided to get the interchangeable to test it out. :) It's wonderful! The tips were smaller in person than I realized(I read the description but sometimes you don't really realize how small something will be until you see it), BUT they were pretty easy to use. My tip/cable join was really secure.

I love the 16" needles, I have a whole set that I got at my LYS. I just wish there were more sizes offered in the interchangeable needles. And there are 16" fixed needles in smaller and larger sizes through KnitPicks also. I would just really like that to translate into the interchangeable soon.

I LOVED these needles when they were suggested for a discounted amount with my purchase. I got the size 8 interchangeable with a cord included and used them non-stop for many projects. Unfortunately, as much as I love them and thought they were wonderful, they snapped and broke right in the middle of a project. The needle and the cord were salvageable.

I love my set of short needles; however, I would like it if larger sizes were offered. Hats of super chunky yarn are in fashion and the standard needles are too long. Thank you!

I used my new shorty set to knit hats for Christmas, they were smooth and did not snag at the join, my only complaint is the same as many others, I wish I could purchase 1 or two larger size tips for my chunky hats.

I love the short tips! It makes hat making so lovely. The cables connect smoothly and I've had no trouble with them coming loose. Thanks cables aren't too stiff either. My only wish is that the short tips were available in bigger sizes.

I love my needles. I have both the regular and short needle sets as well as larger regular needles and live knitting with them . I would like to use these for socks. Please increase the size range of the short needles.

I love this short tips knitting needle, but we need more size of it.

I recently purchased the short interchangeable needles and love them with longer cables for hats. Looking forward to you having the 10.5-13 sizes one day soon.

Love the short tips. I have used Knit Picks interchangeable needles for several years and really like both the wood and the nickel needles. The new Caspian short tips have the same quality in both the tips and the cords that I enjoy. What puts the short tips over the top is the slightly chubbier tip. It is still pointy enough to insert while working more difficult stitches, but it glides through the yarn easier than any needle I have ever used.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this set. Great quality, and they are used so often!. My request is to please make them available in larger sizes for chunkier hats, and sleeves of sweaters. <3

Love the short interchangeable. I wish I could get them size 0 to 3. Are they available also in smaller sizes?

I too have a pair of the short tips and would like to get more, but in the smaller sizes. As a flicker, the short tip just help my knitting fly, and I would love to try these with my long cables for socks.

I love this entire line of needles. The wood feels wonderful in my hands and the short tips makes knitting hats much easier. Several people have asked for smaller sizes, but I would like larger sizes for knitting hats with chunky and bulky yarns. Hopefully that is something in the works.

As always, KnitPicks customer service comes to the rescue. I have never dealt with NICER customer service people! I am currently waiting for my shorties and the next size down from my 24" cables so I can do a decent hat in the round without struggling . I agree with the other comment, please offer these in smaller sizes suitable for socks and preemie hats. And the shorties in nickle would be icing on the cake! Nothing beats Knit Picks needles!

I just received my set of short tips today, and I can't wait to use them for the many hats I will be making this winter. I just wish that they had larger sizes (10.5 - 15) for making hats with bulky and super bulky yarn.

I desperately wish the sort needles were offered in smaller needle sizes 0 thru 3. PLEASE!!

I love these needles! I keep them in my bag at all times because they are perfect for swatches!

I often knit hats and gloves and find the shorties are the best to make them with. A suggestion would be shorties in Nickel, which are great at sliding tight stitches from one needle to the next.

I am completely sold on the shorties! They've come in useful for the hats I've made that make using the short-tip interchangeable needles superior over the double-pointed needles by far. Though, I wish KnitPicks would offer more single-purchase shorties as I can't splurge on the whole set as much as I would like to. Just a thought.

I took a chance and I'm extremely glad I did. I was searching for some short tipped interchangeables. I make beanies mainly, and because these are made as short as they are my movements are smaller which I realized helped with speed. They were so soft, like marble. They shine and the colors just leave you mesmerized. After knitting a beanie, they tips were warm and just cozy in my hand. I sold my chiaogoo red lace interchangeables, my Denise interchangeables, and my clovers. I'm not sure if anything compares to these. The price for these is unbelievable that I will definitely buy another set. I would love a compact carry case like the ones Denise interchangeables come in since I spend my breaks at work knitting. I'm currently in the works of sewing my own. However if one was made, I'd definitely buy it. Knitpicks my favorite color is pink if you can make some in pink that would be amazing. Just a thought. Thank you so much! I adore these.
