Black Nickel Interchangeable Knitting Needles
The cream of the crop! These incredible needles are plated and finished with a proprietary method that covers the needles in a thick plating that has a black hue. Not a dye process, but an electrical one, the black resembles hematite stones. There is reflection that allows even the darkest yarns to be readily seen, and yet the glare is reduced, making these easy on the eyes.
Available in 3.5 and 5 inch lengths.
As with the Northern Light™ anodized needles, purchase any 8 pairs and we will include a case, three coated wire cables and four stops. With 3.5 inch sets, we add in 8, 12, and 16 inch cables. With 5 inch sets, we add in 17, 21, and 29 inch cables.

Coated Wire Cables
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!

Custom Coated Wire Cables
Custom lengths are available in our coated wire cables up to 60 inches (if you need longer, please contact us.) The length you state will be the distance between the two connectors. Add approximately 8 inches for 3.5 inch tips and 11 for 5 inch tips to determine tip to tip length.
