4mm and 80 cm long - suitable for shawl kits
These might seem expensive but, believe me, they are worth it. They are made from stainless steel and have straight, smooth, pointy tips for lace knitting. The red cables are nylon coated steel and do not twist like the cheaper varieties do.
Everyone who has been on one of my shawl courses has bought them to start with or soon after attempting to knit with the cheaper variety.
