Tuesday’s Tip – Try an Interchangeable Needle Tip Instead of a Cable Needle

Using interchangeable needle tip instead of cable needle- Photo by Amy StephensToday’s tip comes from Kerry; one of our wonderful Customer Service Representatives. 

Instead of using a cable needle when knitting cables, Kerry likes to use an interchangeable needle tip. It’s best to use a tip one size smaller than the needles you’re using for the rest of the project. Once you’ve knit your cable, you can stick the needle into the tail of the interchangeable tip to put the stitches back on your needle.

    Ah, clever!

    A DPN can be used also. I usually use a non-metal one. They’re usually closer to hand than an interchangeable tip. I always have socks on the needles so there’s always a small bamboo DPN handy.

    Love this idea! Isn’t it great how versatile interchangeable needles are?
