Circular needle length please?

3206 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.

The parts of the project that are not on the needle ends gather all up so that many more stitches fit just fine. No need to have chest measurements. My whole afghan stitches, 192, gathers up to about 10 inches in the middle of the circular needle.
