jennybuttons is taking a short break
Note from seller

My Dear Buttonneers, My shop is going to be on vacation for an extended time - probably until Jan 2019. My retired husband and I are finally going to do some of the traveling and visiting family that we have put off for so long, and it makes the most sense to keep things closed instead of shutting down/reopening/shutting down over the next few months. If you have an item underway with me now, it will of course be finished. I will also be reachable through the convo system should you have any questions. Thanks so very much for your understanding. I look forward to seeing you again in 2019! Jenny

Solid Bronze Cable Needle Stitch Holder Set - Fabulous Knitter gift

Item details

Set of two solid bronze cable needles 2 3/4 (7.2 cm) and 2" (4.8 cm) long

I remember on a long overseas flight to Tokyo, the stewardess saw I was knitting a cabled scarf and sat down on the seat arm to watch. She was very impressed with the intricate twisting pattern of the cabling - that was, until she saw me actually do it.

"That's it?" she said. "That's all it takes?" She immediately picked up my needles, made a couple of cables, and set out for a future of Aran sweaters and fancy socks.

The secret is out. Making cables is not hard. I won't go into it here. There are wonderful books and videos online to show you how, but the truth is you will have cables from your head to your toes once you learn! Making those cables will be extra luxurious with these solid bronze cable needles.

You will receive two sizes, to cover all your knitting needs.

Crafted of bronze clay, they are hand formed, then kiln fired to produce a pair of sold metal needles. Then they are meticulously polished to ensure no rough surfaces, so they will glide like silk through your wool.

Step up your crafting experience, or give the perfect gift to your favorite knitter. I can guarantee he or she will be thrilled!

    Average review
    These are my very favorite cable needles. I'd ordered one way back and like it so much, I had to order more. They're so much nicer than plastic ones because they don't cause too much drag when knitting stitches off them. They are just a bit less slippery than stainless, so they're perfect. Thank you!

    Smooth, the weight holds the yarn and keeps it in f/b - where it should be vs. plastic that flips around. xoxo

Shipping & policies

Zip or postal code

I ship worldwide. Generally items are sent USPS First Class or Priority with insurance to the US, Australia, Canada, and European Union. To other countries I ship flat rate Priority Mail International envelope. If you need Express delivery, please convo me and I will do my best to accommodate you; you will receive a Paypal invoice for the additional postage.

I do my best to calculate accurate costs, but it can be hard. Please know that my policy is to adjust downwards the shipping cost when I can. "Additional items" sometimes require their own boxes, or are heavy, which can push costs up. I will do my best to be fair to you.

For some international deliveries I may discuss best shipping practices before shipping, and reserve the right to require insurance and/or a signature in certain cases if I think it safest. Also, please be aware of your country's custom regulations, as in some instances you may be responsible for duty charges. I mark packages accurately as to their contents and value.

I will send to your Etsy account address unless I get a convo at the time of purchase giving me other instructions.


I accept Paypal for payment, and credit cards through the Etsu Checkout system.
Sales within Texas are charged 8.25% sales tax.

Returns & exchanges

I will of course accept returns on in stock items, but please choose carefully and thoughtfully. Since all my pieces are one of a kind - when they are not in the shop they are being missed by other Etsy shoppers. I would appreciate being notified within five days of your intent to return, and receive the item back within two weeks after your receipt of it.

Additional policies

I welcome custom orders! I do quite a bit of custom work, and have found it to be a lot of fun. If you see something that is almost but not quite what you need, contact me. Or if you just think of something you want and looking at my work makes you think I can make it, contact me about that too! Those are usually the best ; )
