Coated Wire Cables (fit Northern Light, Black Nickel, Darn Pretty, & Hooks)
We are temporarily out of these cables. We have connectors on order from a new maker. We hope to have connectors again in the coming month.
Strong, supple, and sized just right for our stainless steel connectors! The wire coated cables use the same connector as our former clear cables and will fit our Darn Pretty™, Northern Light™ and Black Nickel needles and crochet hooks.
**These cables do not fit Heavy Metal™ needles.**
Minimum length needed to form a circle:
2 inch tips: 5 inches
3.5 inch tips: 8 inches
4 inch tips: 10, but we recommend 12 inches
5 inch tips: 12, but we recommend 16 inches
Cables are measured by the length between connectors. To calculate using a tip to tip measurement, deduct the total tip length (including connectors) from the total length you want your cable:
Two 3.5 inch needle tips (and the connectors) total approx. 8 inches - for a 16 inch needle tip to tip, 16-8=8. A 24 inch needle tip to tip would be 24-8=16.
Two 5 inch needle tips (and the connectors) total approx. 11 inches - for a 32 inch needle tip to tip, 32-11=21. For a 40 inch tip to tip needle, 40-11=29.
NOTE - if you are a tight knitter, consider putting a smaller tip on the left side, and a larger tip - the size needed to make gauge - on the right. Knitting will flow much more smoothly this way!
