The ChiaoGoo adapters are for use with the ChiaoGoo interchangeable circular knitting needle range. An incredibly handy accessory, use them to connect needle tips to cables of different screw sizes. Adapters are available for connecting L to S-sized products as well as S to MINI-sized products. These adapters can also be combined to connect L to MINI.
General info applicable to all ChiaoGoo interchangeables
TWIST and SPIN products share the same screw sizes, making them compatible with each other. All needle tips and cables are laser engraved with the respective screw-size:
- - M = MINI, applies to needle sizes 1.50-2.50mm (5cm, 8cm, 10cm and 13cm tips)
- - S = Small, applies to needle sizes 2.75-5.00mm (10cm and 13cm tips)
- - L = Large, applies to needles sizes 5.50-10.00mm (10cm and 13cm tips)
The MINI range is not compatible with the standard S and L screw sizes, and thus 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 13cm or 15cm-long MINI cables. These can easily be connected by means of a MINI cable connector to extend the cable length accordingly. ChiaoGoo also offers adaptors which can connect MINI, S and L screw-sized products together.
Exception: the ChiaoGoo Shorties MINI sets contain needle tips sized 2.75-3.25mm which all share the MINI screw-size.
