US 9 (5.5 mm)
Chiaogoo cord lengths do not include the length of the needle tips.
These 3", 4" and 5″ precisely-machined, lace tips are made of surgical stainless steel. The size is laser imprinted on each tip. They have an incredibly clean join, and lovely, pointy tips.
Choosing a cable:
This tip side uses the LARGE cords
- Tips sizes US000 - US 1.5 connect to the mini cords (available in all cord lengths)
Tips sizes US2 - US 8 connect to the small cords (available in all cord lengths)
Tips sizes US9 - US15 connect to the large cords (available in all cord lengths)
- Tightening keys are included in with the cords, not the tips.
Tip length is a matter of personal preference. We recommend the 3" tips for very small diameter project such as sleeves; 4" tips for those knitters with particularly small hands or for small-diameter projects such as hats; we recommend the 5" tips for knitters with large hands.
