Options Nickel Plated Fixed Circular Knitting Needles

$4.12 - $8.49


The 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.

“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

"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

I tried using the size 1 (2.25mm) 40” circular needles for magic loop socks. The join between the needle and the cable is not smooth at all. The yarn loops would get caught and needed making it difficult to pull the needle through. The cost for return shipping is more than the needles, so it looks like I’m keeping them.

I have used knit pick needles over many years and love them. Unfortunately the last circular fixed 2.75 the cable came loose after knitting half way through my third sock. The cable is perfect. It has just the right amount stiffness. I’m just sad it came apart.

I knit a lot of socks and have a variety of different brands for my sock needles. I purchased the size US 3 40" cable needles back in August and I am just getting around to knitting with them. I'm giving these an average rating. The nickel needle portion is wonderful, very smooth and glides well. The needle point could be a touch pointy-er; however, still works great. The cable itself is not very flexible, even having soaking the cables in warm water. The join between the cable and the needle is not very smooth. I would be returning these needles if I wasn't past the 90 day mark.

I love how flexible the cables are and that the needles are pointy BUT the cable seem shorter than my other 32" circular needles. I decide to measure it and surprisingly its only 20.75" long and even including the needles it doesn't even reach 32". I feel completely rip off.

I have been a knitter since I was a child and have used all types of needles. But my current assortment are all Knitpick needles. I have all sizes of the interchangeable needles in both caspian wood and nickel. But because of my rheumatoid arthritis, I’ve found that the fixed circular nickel needles in the 16” are my very favorites. Rather than using a single long circular, I use several 16” circulars to knit my projects. The short needle length doesn’t bother my hands at all and I use however many I need to hold all the stitches. Thankfully, you offer all sizes (even 3.75mm) in this length. Thank you!!
