Thats called a cable. Smart move to get a flexible set from the beginning rather than spend money on a cheap set that frustrates you. I don't know the difference in cables other than flexibility.

I use Knitpicks Options nickel plated or Harmony birch. I don't know what the cable is made from, but it's very flexible. They have a Try-it set that is a good way to test them out. You can also just buy a needle and cable singly if the type doesn't have a set to try. It's cheaper in the long run. I have a few Hiya Hiya and Addi and use them, too.

Hiya Hiya and Addi needles are also good and I'm sure there are others.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
