You just screw the necessary needletips onto the cords. If you need to make a cord longer, you use one of those short metal tubes - screw two cords onto it, and then put the tips on the ends of the long cord. The metal "keys" are there to give you extra umph when twisting things together, but I've never really used them. Lastly, the pink circle things screw onto the cords the same way the needletips do, and are there to serve as endpieces for making straight needles or as stoppers if you use the cord as a stitchholder.

Enjoy. Smiley

Congradulations Pitykitty!  I bought this set a few months ago and love it!  Its pretty easy to use, and don't worry you can't break anything.  Fozziebear pretty much covered everything.  I don't really use the metal keys either, unless I've done something silly like put on hand cream just before I decided to attach the needles to the cord, and need a little more umph to tighten it.

Best of luck and happy knitting!  Smiley

Be careful not to tighten the connectors too much!  I got too enthusiastic with mine and split the connector (I used the key).  "hand tighten" only!  Have fun, I love my set!

Not to hi-jack your thread, but I can't believe everyone is singing the praises of this set.  I got it & tightened with the keys they provided & it still came unscrewed during my pinwheel baby blanket - TWICE &  I ended up dropping about 100 stitches.  Everytime someone says it's so great it makes me wonder what I've done wrong.  I am giving it another shot because Michaels wouldn't take it back.  But I am very reluctant to put my next project on it.......
