It’s one of the biggest problems with circular knitting needles: the cord is often all twisted! When too curly, the needle is difficult to work with… and it’s often in it’s curly state when it comes out of the package or after being stored for a while (as pictured in photo 1, above). Fortunately, it’s an easy problem to solve.
To untwist a curly needle cord, just soak it in warm water (photo 2, above)!
The warm water relaxes the cord, and it will come out nicely uncurled… all ready for you to begin knitting! How easy is that?
