Knitter's Pride Interchangeable Cables

$2.49 Each

Knitter's Pride Interchangeable Colored Cables are resilient, flexible cords that lay flat, with no kink or twist – easy to store. They have a smooth join, enabling stitches to slide around needles effortlessly. A long, threaded screw-in “join” insures that cord and needles stay connected. There's a tightening hole in the metal join for extra secure tightening, to be used with a specially designed “key” that facilitates effortless tightening. End caps easily fit on the cords and keeps your knitting safe. You will receive one cord, two end caps & one cord key with each set. Please note that the cable lengths sold below reflect the final length of circular needle (i.e. the cable plus the two needle tips), and not the length of the cable itself. The 16" Cable when combined with the 4.5" tips creates an 18.25" long circular needle. The 16" Cable when combined with the shorter Special Interchangeable Tips creates a 16" long circular needle.

Colors and sizes are as follows:
16" = Yellow
20" = Blue
24" = Green
32" = Orange
40" = Red

47" and 60" cables are black.

After years of using Takumi needles with stiff cables, and some cheapo cable needles that kept breaking, I caved in and bought a few of these cables with bamboo needles. What a difference! I love that bamboo needles are offered, and I love how smooth the connections are. (Yes, you do have to tighten them with the little tool that is included, otherwise they come undone. I've also used a sturdy straight pin when I can't find the tool thingy.)

I just bought two more 40" cables so that I don't have to keep transferring the whole device from one sweater to another (I have three sweaters going right now so this is a big deal!) SO glad I made this investment.

i needed to replace a shorter cable as the older black one i had purchased from here that i was using for my hat pulled out of the metal end under too much tension and refused to go back in. the newer rainbow colored ones are of a lesser quality. the cables are a bit stiffer, and one of the blue 20" ones was kindly replaced for me as an end was machined wrong and wouldn't screw into my needle tips. on my yellow 16" cable the tightening holes are almost too small to fit the keys. all told, i like the old manufacturer better, but the concept of different colors for different sizes is a good idea. if there was another company that made these sizes to fit in all these KP style needles i would try those.

    Comments about KNITTER'S PRIDE Interchangeable Cables:

    They r easy on my hands, and yarn stay onto needle when knitting, the cord does not tangle. Easy knitting. Love the valley yarn, very soft and stretches for easy and comfortable knitting. I am enjoying knitting this blanket, was using another brand needle and another yarn. I got so discouraged, dropping stitches and yarn was splitting. Will buy this yarn again.

    Needs more emphasis on use of "special" needle tips.

    Comments about KNITTER'S PRIDE Interchangeable Cables:

    This is a great idea, but I didn't realize I would need the "special" needle tips for the 16" circular needle size. I only have the regular needle tips.

    With regular tips it is very difficult, if not impossible to do a circular knitting.

    The black cables were much better

    Pros

    • The color coding would be great if it worked

    Cons

    • the color cords are awful

    Best Uses

    • you'll be returning them for cords that work

    Comments about KNITTER'S PRIDE Interchangeable Cables:

    I love my Karbonz Interchangeables and the original cords. I've since ordered extra cords and needle sets and most of the color coded cords i've been returning to my LYS and we go thru them until we find cords that will actually screw into the needles and that have holes large enough to use the key to lock them into place so they don't come off while you're knitting. The black cords were much better quality!

    • right length for a 16" irregular needle

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about KNITTER'S PRIDE Interchangeable Cables:

        Even though I have the complete set of 5" Knitter's Pride Nova Platina interchangeable needle tips and all the cords, I didn't have the short cord to make a 16" needle. This is exactly the right length that I needed!
