ChiaoGoo - Interchangeable Twist Shortie Combo Pack 2" & 3"
ChiaoGoo Twist Shortie Combo packs contain one 2" (5 cm) and one 3" (8 cm) set of the same size tip as well as two cables allowing knitters to make 9" (23 cm) - 12" (31 cm) circulars. These tips are solid, have a MINI diameter join and a tightening hole in both the cable and needle tips.
Normally I struggle when I use 4 double-pointed needles to finish a circular hat. This package contains 5 needles, enabling me to divide my work into 4 quadrants. The needles have been a pleasure to work with, inspiring me to tackle my second pair of socks.
The Mini cables (available in 2.25mm and 2.50mm) are the greatest for sock knitting. The needles have a very nice point. These are now my Go-to sock needles. (I used to use Addi's) I have recently found that there is an adapter available to convert the Mini cables to larger needles; the ones that use the Small cables.
I was gifted the large stitch markers but never knew they came in other sizes! They are amazing!
I am disappointed with these needles. The description says they "have the same memory-free cable as our RED circulars", but they do not. the cables are too stiff. I prefer a wooden or bamboo needle, so thought these would be perfect, but I will look into a different brand in the future.
This kit is perfect. A gorgeous fabric case holds all of the needles securely, keeping various sizes organized. The needles themselves are well made, feel comfortable in the hand, and are working well with my fuzzy yarn. Very much recommend.
