Circular needle length please?

3207 Views 20 Replies 15 Participants Last post by  Chrissy
Firstly I have been using circulars for 'straight' knitting for some time and love them!
I have found a lovely sweater pattern on here (called Amused) which is knitted in the round and from top down (2 new areas for me)
It says 32" length needle on pattern but this is less than my ample chest!
How do I estimate needle length please.
Many thanks.

If the pattern is less than 40", the 32's will be fine. Go up to 42" only for sizes above 42". You need slack (some scrunchiness) in the stitches or they won't move on the needle smoothly and easily.
