I tried knitting with the size 9 on the smallest cable which I think equals 17" and found I could not knit with the small cable. Is it just me or do other people have this problem? If other people have this problem I'm wondering why they even put a cable that small in the kit? :shrug:

Measure from needle tip to needle tip to get measurements. It's not the smallest cable that gives you 17 in. Use that one to extend cable length when needed. :hug:

Or use that small one as a stitch holder! :thumbsup:

The needle tips themselves are about 3.5 in. The smallest cable is 5 inches and I only use that one for extension or as a stitch holder as previously mentioned. The next largest cable is 9 inches and makes a 17 in. circ needle. I use that all the time for hats since I have never made a hat that is smaller than 17 in. it works great.
