Okay soo I'm new to knitting, and the pattern calls for Size 8 24 inch circulars, what would happen if i used size 8 29 inch circulars? Would that be disastrouse? Like would it make it alot bigger, but since its knit flat would that happen? And what if i just used straight needles? hahah so many questions!

Thanks!

The pattern notes state that the designer suggests "knitting this sweater on a circular needle because you can join new colors at either end of the circulars - especially important when you work on tripes.  Alsl it is easier to knit the hood on circulars than on straight needles."

A 29" size would be fine over the 24"; it's more important in this instance to obtain stitch and row gauge.  As the designer says - you COULD use straight, but circular is easier for her - especially on the hood.  You could work with what you have and buy only if it's not working with the straights.

Good luck!

Honestly dear,

If you could....use the circs! If you use straights it's going to kill your hands to wrangle them all on one needle. The circs come in mighty handy for the stripes and the hood. Other than that you don't really need to knit in the round and it can be done on a 29" length (made mine on one).
