The 16 and 20 inch cables are only available for the 4 inch long needle stalks. The shortest length cable for the 5 inch needle stalks is 24 inch and for the 6 inch needle stalks the shortest cable is 32 inches. This limitation keeps the cable from being pulled too tightly while knitting. Please note: when we are referring to cable length it is the overall length from tip to tip when the needles are attached not the cable measurement only.
Special order requests for longer cables--Please contact us by phone at 1-888-656-1113.
