Short double-pointed needle, this is a cable needle. These needles hold stitches when forming cable patterns
While it’s possible to knit cables without a cable needle (either using a DPN or something similar), this is a handy tool for keeping active stitches safe while moving them around.
Cable needles are only a few inches long and they come in fewer diameters because they only hold a few stitches for a short time. When choosing the needle diameter, use one that is the same size or smaller than the regular needles for the project.
