How to choose the length:
When knitting in the round, you are advised to choose needles that are shorter (needles + cable combined) than the circumference of your project. For flat knitting, it is more comfortable to knit with longer cables (80 or 120cm).
- 40cm circular needles: suitable for knitting sleeves, collars, hats and other circular pieces with small diameters in the round.
- 60cm circular needles: suitable for knitting children's sweaters and close-fitting women's tops in the round.
- 80cm circular needles (standard size): suitable for knitting the body of adult sweaters and other pieces of larger diameters in the round, and for knitting flat.
