Knitters who are constantly casting on new projects can really benefit from the best interchangeable knitting needle sets. In the knitting community, these sets are very popular. Interchangeable needle sets consist of ten to twelve different sizes of knitting needles, and a few lengths of cable. With these sets, you have every standard size knitting needle, and will rarely need to purchase another.
Using these sets is very simple. Starting a new project simply means figuring out what needles you need and twisting the needles into the length of cord. High quality sets like the Addi Clicks ensure that the join between your cord and needle is very smooth and will not untwist. When you start a new project, consult the “Materials” section of your pattern, where you will find the needle size needed. You may find that your pattern calls for 16″ #11 needles. This means that you should take your 16″ cord and twist them into your U.S. size 11 needles.
When you sit down to start a new project, it is a very good habit to check the “gauge” of your knitting, especially if you are trying the project on a yarn not specified in the pattern. For any given project, the pattern will tell you how many stitches per inch you should be getting on a certain size needle. For example, a pattern may specify that you should be getting 4.5 stitches to the inch with your yarn.
In a perfect world, everyone would get 4.5 stitches to the inch when testing their gauge swatch. The truth is, some people knit with a tighter or looser tension than others. Because of this, the best interchangeable knitting needle are a great resource: you can simply go up or down a needle size to get gauge! You don’t even need to take your project off of your cord: you can just twist on new needles!
