A couple of questions.

Is the cable flexible enough for magic loop?
Is 29" long enough?

TIA for any input.

I think it's easier to use 36" for magic loop but I've been successful using 29" too. You just have less of a loop to work with so if you're working something larger it might be tricky to use 29".

Good luck!

A 29" can work, 32" is probably better. You can also use the single loop version which doesn't need as long a cord as for ML. Clovers can be used, if you dip the cord in hot water it softens it up some as well as uncurling it.

When I use the 29 inch circs it is more like the single loop/doing a modified magic loop where you just pull the excess cord out of the way. I do tend to find that I get more stretched stitches than if I am just knitting in the round.

Thanks so much for your input everyone.  I had never heard of the single loop method.  I will have to give that one a try!!!
