ChiaoGoo Forté 2.0 Set | Interchangeable Knitting Needles | Special Edition 2024 with Project Bag

This next generation version of the Special Edition interchangeable set from ChiaoGoo includes eight pairs of tips that have been created from carbon fibre with a stainless steel point and six pairs crafted from an elegant combination of luxurious African Blackwood with sleek stainless steel points, plus silver-coloured SWIV360™ interchangeable cables and classic TWIST Red Lace cables.

Made of REACH compliant man-made material, the Forté case is just as elegant and functional as the tips and cables. It includes a double-sided, removable needle board that firmly houses all tips; elastic that securely holds but gives easy access to accessories; and four pockets to hold the rest of your knitting supplies including a spot for your pattern or notes. In true ChiaoGoo style, it opens like a book with a full zipper enclosure to ensure that nothing falls out.


These four patent-pending features set these carbon fibre needles above the rest!

1. Made of stainless steel and carbon fibre for strength and durability (not plated, no rust)

2. Parts securely assembled with interference press-fit technology (no glue)

3. Precision ground for perfect joins and size accuracy (no seams)

4. Advanced nano-coating technology for slick yarn feed (no drag)


The set includes:

  • Eight pairs of 5in (13cm) long tips 2.75mm, 3mm, 3.25mm, 3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4mm, 4.5mm and 5mm crafted from durable yet lightweight carbon fibre with stainless steel points
  • Six pairs of 5in (13cm) long tips 5.5mm, 6mm, 6.5mm, 8mm, 9mm and 10mm crafted from an elegant combination of luxurious African Blackwood and sleek stainless steel
  • Six memory-free SWIV360™ cables (1 x 14in, 1 x 22in and 1 x 30in Small [S] and 1 x 14in, 1 x 22in and 1 x 30in Large [L])
  • Three memory-free TWIST Red Lace cables (1 x 14in, 1 x 22in and 1 x 30in [S]) for those knitters who prefer a smoother transition over the swivel action
  • Steel scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • End stoppers [pair each of Small [S] and Large [L]
  • Stitch markers
  • Darning needles
  • Needle/swatch gauge and more come with the set

All Forté parts and pieces have [S] or [L] size joins so they are switchable with all of ChiaoGoo’s other similarly coded interchangeable parts. Each threaded steel join is laser etched with the tip diameter and join size which will not wear off, ever.

Supplied with a useful Little Knitting Co 100% cotton project bag


  • When securing the tip/cable connection with your tightening key, be sure to hold the tip by it's metal join (not the shaft).
  • Occasionally wipe down your cables with rubbing alcohol to ensure a smooth yarn feed.
  • When removing stoppers from your cable, use two tightening keys to loosen the join and then unscrew by hand.
  • Store and handle your cables carefully. They are memory-free not kink-free.
