ChiaoGoo Complete set, Twist Red lace/cable and 5″ tips


ChiaoGoo Complete set

This ChiaoGoo complete set has a range of 5″ stainless steel needle tips from 2.75mm to 10mm. The red lace cables screw into the needle tips and “lock” with a key to prevent them undoing mid row. The cables are of various lengths in 2 thicknesses for small and large tips. The ChiaoGoo complete set comes with cable extenders too so you can combine cables for even more variety of lengths.

All the tips and cables are stored in pockets and slots in the co-ordinating fabric zip up case which makes them easy to carry and no fear of loosing them.

What’s the fuss about the ChiaoGoo Complete set?

The set can be used for circular knitting as well as flat knitting. (Just use them backwards and forwards as though they were straight.) The set has all the tips and cables most knitters will ever need for their knitting projects and although the tips are stainless steel, they are smooth and easy to use. The join between the cable and tip is also smooth so knitting stitches don’t get snagged. There is also a small hole to use the tightening key, and to use to thread a “lifeline” as you knit. (Handy with complex patterns). Lastly, the set comes with end keys which screw into the cable ends so you can “park” your work safely if you need to use the tips for another project.

This set can be added to with additional single sets of tips and small cables and large cables if you find you need several of the same size for your WIPs.

What a customer says:

My customer,  Anne-Marie agrees that these are really special needles, here’s what she said:

  • I’ve been using the ChiaoGoo interchangeable knitting needle set I ordered from you recently and I couldn’t be happier.
  • The cables stay on—I can’t get them off, even after lots of knitting, without the key (contrast one set of interchangeable needles I have, whose tips fall off the cables mid-garment).
  • The cables never contort—contrast one famous brand of non-interchangeable circulars I have, which even after treating with hot water, as directed (and why do I have to do this in the first place?) still twist like a cobra.
  • I’m not terribly interested in the cases/ accessories aspect of interchangeables, but the icing on the cake with this set is that the case is small (I don’t want a box the size of a gift hamper), the slots for the needles are labelled, the outside pocket holds the bits and pieces and the fabric is tasteful.


I have a wide range of circulars, tips, cables and DPNs, and straights. Please contact me if you need help or advice on what to choose.
