Interchangeable KnitSaver Cables - from HiyaHiya
Add more flexibility to your Hiya Hiya Interchangeable Set with additional cords.
Lace knitting is one of the most challenging types of knitting because of the difficulties involved when you have to unravel one or more rows to fix a problem. To keep your knitting from unraveling further than you want, knitters often insert a lifeline into their projects. Although it is possible to insert a lifeline using a needle and thread or dental floss, an easier technique can be accomplished using your HiyaHiya Interchangeable cable with a lifeline hole.
Pair a cable with a set of HiyaHiya interchangeable needle tips to form a complete circular needle. Cables with a small base will fit HiyaHiya Interchangeable needle tips with a small base, as well (size 2-8 US / 2.75-5 mm). Cables with a large base will fit tips with a large base (size 9-15 US / 5.5-10 mm).
Needle lengths are measured from tip to tip. For approximate cord length, please see the chart below:
