Cocoknits – Bamboo Cable Needles
13 in stock
Your auxiliary needles have a way to slip out of your knitting just in the middle of a difficult stitch crossing? Cocoknits’ bamboo cable needles set will help you prevent that!
Indeed, using metallic cable needles can quickly become a slippery matter. Particularly when you knit a slippery yarn, you head for disaster. That’s why it can be easier to use bamboo for this particular type of work, as it is “stickier”. This way, your stitches will stay put on your auxiliary needle while you cross them. And if you are a fan of the Maker’s Keep of the brand, you can even put these particular needles on it thanks to their central metal ring.
You have never worked cables before? Keep calm, it is way easier than it seems. Our tutorial will lead you through this step by step. Even if it is written in French, there are loads of pictures that show you how to do it.
