Q: Is this the red lace twist interchangeable 4” tip?
A: Hi Katherine, Yes they are and thank you for asking. Tracy, Handsome Fibers.
Q: How is the length measured? From tip to top of join?
A: Hi Jennie, The tips when connected to a cable measure 4 inches from the tip of the needle to where the actual join of the red cable itself starts. Total of 4 inches of metal. I hope that helps and thank you for asking. Tracy, Handsome Fibers.
Q: Do these tips come with a cable key?
A: Hi Cynthia, These tips do not come with a cable key, sorry about that. They are included with the individual cables themselves. Thank you for asking. Tracy, Handsome Fibers.
Q: Do the size 8 tips come in large?
A: Hi JoAnn, They are not manufactured with a (L) or large join, sorry about that. Thank you for asking. Tracy, Handsome Fibers.
Q: is there a way to mark the metal 4" tips for size?
These tips have the size laser engraved on the tips themselves.
Thank you for asking.
Q: Hi, hope you can help me with this. I'm driving myself crazy trying to figure out this dilemma. I just bout the Chiagoo complete 5" interchangeable set. It's wonderful, but I am sure I will need at least some 4" tips so I can make hats. Do you think I should buy another complete set in 4" or buy individual tips? If individual which ones, which ones would you suggest?
A: We would recommend purchasing just the 4" tips and 8" cables piecemeal. If you'll be making hats with worsted weight yarn we would suggest sizes US 6, 7, and 8 as the most frequently used.
Q: Do you know if the ChiaoGoo twist IC tips would screw onto KnitPicks IC cables? I have a KnitPicks set of rosewood ICs but need sharper tips for a shawl I am knitting. Love the ChiaoGoo circulars! Thanks.
A: Hi Jeanette,
No they will not. The are not compatible, sorry about that.
Thank you for checking.
Q: Just needed clarification on 4" tip and cable compatibility. If I wanted to purchase a 4" tip would any of the "S" cables over 8" be compatible?
A: Good morning, Yes they will work just fine as long as your tips are a "S" join size for tips sizes US-2 through US-8 or using a "L" cable with US tip sizes 9 through 15. Using 4 inch tips with longer cables other than the 8 inch cables will only result in your circular being two inches shorter. For example, using 4 inch tips with a 14 inch cable will result in a 22 inch circular. Thank you for asking. Tracy, Handsome Fibers.
A: Wow, thanks for clearing that up for me and your quick response Tracy!
A: You are very welcome! Tracy, Handsome Fibers.
Q: Hello! Will these tips fit the standard cables from Knitter's Pride and Dreamz? Thanks!
A: Hi, Thank you for your question. No, these will not fit any of the Knitter's Pride cables. Knitter's Pride and ChiaoGoo products are not interchangeable. Thank you for asking. Tracy, Handsome Fibers.
