The Story behind Neko.
The innovative and patented cable stitch needle from Neko is designed to make the knitting of cable stitches much easier.
Due to the curved and balanced form
of Neko's Cable Stitch Needles taken stitches are simply held on the needle and do not fall off the needle during the
Neko's flattened needle tip design helps much taking up the stitches.
The Neko Cable Stitch Needles are available in many bright colors and in four different sizes 3mm, 4.5mm, 6mm and 8mm.
The needles are made of plastic.
Neko's Curved Double Pointed Needle design makes it possible
to stitch socks, hats and loops with only 3 stitching needles.
Two needles hold the stitches and the third needle is used as
Neko's Curved Needle Set makes knitting socks, hats and loops
easier, faster and much more comfortable.
In Germany this kind of knitting sock, hats and loops
is called "Knitting Game" (Strickspiel).
With Neko's CDPNs it is not done with five needles as usual
but with three needles only.

3.0mm - 5.0mm (# US 2.5 - 8.0) in XL version and

On vacation on Germany's beautiful baltic sea island Rügen I dreamed of a cable stitch needle which would no longer slip out of the knitted things. The excellent functionality of the first needle prototyps for my own use impressed me much and the idea of Neko was born ...
Since I turned 13 I am knitting day in, day out and everywhere. Whether on the train, at home or in my doctor's office. For me knitting is meditation and I hope that my invention will help all knitting enthusiasts as well as beginners to knit the pattern they like ... specifically the cable stitch pattern.
Have fun and cheers
