Hiya Hiya – Cable adapters
Have you ever thought that the usefulness of something is inversely related to its size? Hiya Hiya’s cable adapters are the perfect example of this feeling! Indeed, these small pieces of steel are really practical.
If you are on this page, you certainly are familiar with the cable system of the brand. If it is not the case, here is a reminder! There are three types of cables, to be chosen depending on the needle size you want to use. The “Mini” cables go with needle tips from size 2 to 2.25 mm, the “Small” cables with needle tips from size 2.5 to 5 mm, and the “Large” cables with needle tips from 5.5 mm to 10 mm.
Because of that, and depending on the needle sizes you most work with, you could quickly find yourself with a whole bunch of cables. For example, if you like to work on lighter projects in summer, but also wear big cozy sweaters in winter, you would need some “small” cables as well as some “large” ones. And that is when you will need Hiya Hiya cable adapters! Thanks to them, you will be able to use a unique type of cable with two types of needle tips.
You can choose between two formats:
- from “small” to “mini”: to use your “small” needle tips with a “mini” cable. You will like them if you knit fine to finest yarns. This way, you will only need “mini” cables;
- from “small” to “large”: to use your “large” needle tips with a “small” cable. You will need those if you knit both light-weight and bulky projects. This way, you will only need “small” cables.
You will receive two attachments per package, one for each side of your cables.
These adapters are definitely part of the must-haves of every knitter using the Hiya Hiya needles. Actually, they are like the cable connectors, that you use to join two small cables to make a longer one: really small and really practical!
