Options Short Interchangeable Foursquare Majestic Circular Knitting NeedleSet

$44.99


Foursquare needles take the same Knit Picks needles that you know and love and square them. These square interchangeable knitting needles have smooth, flat sides that fit perfectly against your fingers and gently rounded corners offer a comfortable, secure grip, helping keep your hands limber and your stitches even for hours of comfortable knitting.

Boasting the usual strong and smooth layers of laminated birch, our Foursquare needles show off the deep purples, greens, blues, and distinctive black cord of our Majestic needle colorway.

The Short Options Interchangeable Needle Set is designed with shorter needle tips that connect snag-free to our distinctive black cable. This set includes two cables - simply attach the needle tip to create a versatile 16" interchangeable circular needle perfect for hats, sleeves, and other, more compact projects.

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.

Note: While all of the Knit Picks Option Interchangeable Needles will fit on the shorter cables, we strongly recommend not using the longer tips on these cables - the circumference will not measure 16" and your needles can bend or break.

I love the look of these needles and loved working with them, however I am not even all the way my first shawl with them and the ones I have been using are worn out and the wood is catching on my yarn where it has worn the most on the tips. I won't likely be buying more of these wooden type needles in the future and ended up having to replace these tips so I can finish my project.

I love my new short tips set. It saves me from buying 16" separates. I would love it if you would come out with larger than size 10 (6mm) tips.

WOW I love these needles. Have been using square needles for a while now and never use the round ones any more. Tried all the different brands but when they were out of stock on certain sizes I needed I discovered these. Given the reasonable prices, I thought I'd give them a try. SO glad I did. These are the best of all the squares I've used and much less expensive. Smooth, easy to work with, beautiful, and did I mention :-) reasonably priced. Please .... keep making these wonderful needles.

Senior knitter here and would swear to you, What? ONLY round needles work. Who ever heard of SQUARE and Short Tips? Grandson purchased the set for me for Christmas and holy moley these things are the best EVER. Did not slow my knitting speed down, but did make it more accurate and lets you sort of "feel" when you just didn't quite knit that stitch quite right. Keeps your speed but makes you more accurate as odd as that seems. Keeps stitches from sliding off but yet glides off very quickly as you work your stitch. I purposely stayed away from such nonsense, square needles, harrumph, but the short stalk, flexible cords and unique square design just may surprise you with greater comfort than the old ways. The times they are a changing....

The Foursquare needles are easy to hold. The needles are very smooth, and the cables make a tight join, allowing yarn to move easily over them. I appreciate the sharp points, which make it easier to do brioche and techniques involving multiple stitches. The needles are also beautiful colors! It would be great to have these in a lighter color, too,for greater contrast with dark colored yarns.

These needles are smooth and fit nicely in the hand. I prefer shorter tips, and these are just right, only about the length of my palm (including the connector on the cable) For me this is just the right gives me plenty of flexibility, and means I can knit in my lap without the end of the needle getting in my way. The slightly square shape also gives you a little bit of grip, without risking any catching. And they're lovely to look at. I will mention that if you get any of the other cables, the cable length is based on the cable plus the standard needles, so if you're using these they will be a couple of inches shorter.

I love knitting with this short Foursquare needle set so much that I also purchased the large interchangable set.

I just received this set the other day & I am thoroughly enjoying knitting with them! They are beautifully made & feel good in the hands. I love them so much that I purchased the large set & cable needs as well. Try them, you'll be glad you did!
