Options Short Nickel Interchangeable Circular Knitting Needle Set


The Options Short Interchangeable Needle Set in nickel is designed with shorter needle tips that connect snag-free to a black cable. This set includes two cables - simply attach the needle tips to create a versatile 16" interchangeable circular needle perfect for hats, sleeves, and other, more compact projects. Tip sizes are US 4,5,6,7,8,9,and 10 (3.5mm,3.75mm,4mm,4.5mm,5mm,5.5mm,and 6mm), and each tip is 2.75" long.
Featuring smooth joins, perfectly tapered tips and flexible cables, this set includes 7 of our bestselling needle tips and 2 cables to create a 16" circular knitting needle - all of which are stored in a handy vinyl case. Two small cable keys are included, which allow you to tighten your needle tips to the cables. Working on multiple projects that call for the same needle size? Use the included endcaps to safely store your project as you start the next.

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 agree with the other knitters! These shorties are amazzzzzzzzzzing!!!! I like the metal tips better than the wooden ones, though, because of the way I knit, the wooden ones are wearing down on the tip ends... :( Like Phanessa, I too would like to see these shorties in the full range of sizes, just like the regular length tips.

Wasn't sure how these would perform, but do not like dp. I love them. Very easy to knit in the round. Wish these were larger sizes available. The price is very good too for all the included sizes.

I purchased 2 Options Short Nickel Interchangeable Circular Knitting Needle Sets in October 2018. They are EXCELLENT! I’ve been relying on DPNs for making hats. The interchangeables have hugely increased my knitting speed when making hats for the 7 grandkids! I used Brava Worsted for the first hats I knitted with these needles. My hands fairly flew through the knitting!

Please make larger needle sizes in shirt tips. I work with mostly beanies using super bulky yarn and a 16” 9-10mm is in high demand. A lot of folks ask me where to purchase them but there’s not a wide range of options out there :(
