Sorry to bring this topic up but I have a question and I really need help! I'm planning in buying some circular needles the problem is that I don't know if I should buy them with the length 37"(120cm) or 31"(80cm). I'm going to use it for making this sweater but I'm planning in making others. Can you please help me? I'm afraid 80cm it's too small and 120cm it's too big!

It's almost always better to have circs that are too small rather than too big (Magic Loop being the exception).  You can fit more stitches onto a smaller needles, but you can't stretch them out if your needle is too long.  I hope that makes sense.

Yes it makes sense. I get it. Can you give me your pratical opinion? In your sweaters it usually fits 31'' or better 37''? Thank you for the support!
