My needle rope is shorter than it is on the package

  • KnitPro
    Cable lengths are specified on the packaging of a needle rope or the depositors with needle sets. This length refers to the length of a circular needle.
    Therefore, for example a size displayed on the packaging of 80 means a length for a circular needle of 80 cm total length. So needle tip + rope + needle tip
    •  20 cm length of rope for 40 cm / 16'' circular needle
    •  28 cm length of rope for 50 cm / 20'' circular needle
    •  35 cm length of rope for 60 cm / 24'' circular needle
    •  56 cm length of rope for 80 cm / 32'' circular needle
    •  76 cm length of rope for 100 cm / 40'' circular needle
    •  94 cm length of rope for 120 cm / 47'' circular needle
    • 126 cm length of rope for 150 cm / 60'' circular needle

    When using a crochet hook with a needle rope and stopper as Tunisian/Afghan crochet hook, the achieved length is about 14 cm shorter. So with needle rope for 80 cm Circular needle an approx. 66 cm length is a Tunisian / Afghaniche crochet hook.


     


Needle Tips are shorter than specified in the description

  • KnitPro
    The length of needle tips is specified with 128 mm in length. The manufacturer expects it the length of the needle tip + the metal part on the rope as the length of the needle tip. It made 2 different lengths on needle 128 mm and the some shorter 100 mm tips.

My rope detaches from the needle tip at the knitting

  • Watch my short video is to, as the cable is attached properly, so there's no frustration when using.

Needle + rope + needle = 40 cm

  • This is only possible if shorter needle tips (100mm) are used. These tips are not always on stock and so I recommend therefore the needles 40 cm Symphonie-Holz or Nova Metal
