I have never used these needles, but I looked them up on line. According to this site they make interesting textures and help people who knit tightly knit more comfortably. Here is the website I went to

These are not the same as the interchangeable needles. There's too much difference in size to 'get gauge' by using the different sizes, that's not what they're for. The small one is generally around an 8 and the other an 11 or 13. The patterns I have you knit the RS row with the little one and purl (or do the WS row) with the larger one. It creates a sort of lacey effect.
