Twist Interchangeable Cables


Twist cables are memory-free! They consist of a multi-strand, steel cable coated with red nylon. Pick up a few extras to round out your Interchangeable Needle Set or combine with with individual ChiaoGoo Twist Interchangeable Tips.

Please double check your needle tip size to determine what cable size you need:

  • Mini cables for needle sizes US 000 – 1½ (1.5 – 2.5 mm)
  • Small cables for needle sizes US 2 – 8 (2.75 – 5 mm)
  • Large cables for needle sizes US 9 – 15 (5.5 – 10 mm)

An 8″ (20 cm) cable length will make a 16″ (40 cm) circular needle when 4″ (10 cm) tips are attached. Lifeline holes can be found at each end of these cables. Insert the T-shaped tightening key into the lifeline hole to assist with securing your tip/cable connection.
