Wrong Size Circular Needles
 
The pattern Im doing called for a 10.5 needle and the length is 24 inches, but I bought one that was 29 inches, what do I do? Can I still use it to make the pattern?

What is it that you're making? Can you give us a link to the pattern?

It will probably be fine, but it could depend on your pattern? What are you making? Is it knit flat or in the round?

Oh that's beautiful! It may fit, but the stitches will be stretch further than you may want them knitting in the round. If they are then you can do a modified magic loop. I can't find a link that works, but when I do I'll post it.

I suggest you give it a try though because it may work just fine as it is.

I tried casting on the sts for it on the needle but it didnt fit, i thought about casting on enough sts to make is connect in the round and decressing until I reach the required number of sts, but Im not sure if I can decrease in the cast on. Can I do that with no problems

The link works Jan, but you have to be signed up to the VK site and logged on to see it. But it doesn't like my saved pw even though I'm getter their emails...

The width is supposed to be 14" across, so double that would be 28" and I think it'll work after you knit the first round. You could cast on and do one row flat, then join at the end of it.

Im sorry but I dont understand what your telling me to do, can you explain further. If the pattern is doubled ca I still work the same pattern, will it look the same? If so how do I do it?

The bag is knit in the round and measures 14" across the width which means you'd be knitting 28" around on your needle, not doubling the sts.
