The ChiaoGoo TWIST Shorts interchangeable circular knitting needle sets are ideal for projects with a small diameter, such as socks, mittens, hats or baby clothes. The stainless steel needles can be combined in various ways with the short cables to form circular knitting needles with a length of 23-36cm. The provided tightening keys make it very easy to tighten or loosen the needles. The set can be stored in a case that can hold several interchangeable needles and cables. In the small pocket you can store all sorts of other accessories, such as connectors, end stoppers, tightening keys and stitch markers. Both the large and small pockets have a zipper closure. The case can be attached to a larger bag for example by means of the ring. Available in MINI (red) and SMALL (blue).

General information applicable to all ChiaoGoo interchangeables
TWIST and SPIN products share the same screw size, making them compatible with each other. All needle tips and cables are laser engraved with the respective screw size:
M = MINI, (RED) applies to needle sizes 1.50-2.50mm (10 and 13cm) and 1.50-3.25mm (8cm)
S = Small, (BLUE) applies to needle sizes 2.75-5.00mm (10 and 13cm) and 3.50-5.00mm (8cm)
L = Large, (YELLOW) applies to needle sizes 5.50-10.00mm (10 and 13cm)
The MINI range is not compatible with the S and L screw size, therefore all MINI needle tips require a MINI cable. Please note that the 10cm- and 13cm-long MINI needle tips are too long for use with the 5cm-, 13cm- and 15cm-long MINI cables. They can be easily connected by means of a MINI cable connector to extend the cable length. ChiaoGoo also offers adapters which can connect MINI, S and L screw-sized products together.
Exception: the ChiaoGoo MINI SHORTIES needle tips (sizes 1.50-3.25mm) are only compatible with MINI screw-sized products.
