Straight Cable Needles 2.0mm, 5.0mm
These 2 straight cable needles are 2.0mm and 5.0mm gauge, (metal so they won’t break) and used for cable patterns with Aran designs and for some lace stitches. A simple essential for any knitter to hold stitches in front and behind worked stitches to move stitches across. Usually seen in pattern abbreviations as C4B, C2F, (cable 4 stitches behind, cable 2 stitches in front)etc. I prefer the straight cable needles, but some knitters prefer the “cranked” style, which Gorgeous Yarns also stocks.
