They are sold as a pair, inclusive of stopper ends. Tips are sold separately.

I wanted to have something a bit different here in the shop so here is HiyaHiya!
The HiyaHiya interchangeable knitting needle sets include both interchangeable cables and tips. They feature keyless screw on cables.
Each set includes a practical and portable brocade case and needle grips to help secure the tips and the cables.
One set contains the smaller size tips as follows : 2.75mm; 3.25mm; 3.5mm; 3.75mm; 4mm; 4.5mm and 5mm. Also included are 4 cables to make needles that are 16″, 24″, 32″ and 40″ in length.
Another set includes the larger size tips : 5.5mm; 6mm; 8mm; 9mm and 10mm, together with the same cables as above.
There is also a very high quality and attractive range of HiyaHiya notions, most of which we have in the shop. Have a look at the Dumplings !
