You can still post a few lines to ask for help, but I think we have all the information we need to help you.

"Circumference (in stockinette): 30cm"

That would be about 12" and while they make 9 and 12" circulars, many people find them a pain to work with as the tips are very short. However, you can use longer circs - 24 to 32" and use the magic loop or single loop techniqus. Magic loop is show on the Advanced techniques page, and SL can be viewed at One Loop (Travelling Loop Method)

If you're going to use more stitches, you can probably do one on a 16" circ.

To Humiliate The Dog Is this it? I'm going to d/l it, my DD's family has 'huas.

ETA: I can't read! I thought you were asking about I cord. No wonder I couldn't find where it's used. :chair:

I just read the information at ravelry - size 4 needles with bulky yarn!?!? That must be awfully hard to work with, I'd suggest a fingering or sport weight instead. Some people used worsted and cast on more stitches, though they may have needed to make a larger size.

Last year's squirrel costume and the shark costume this year were bad enough. The dog hated them.

This is just SO wrong on SO many levels... I'd never subject Tonka (my black Lab mix) to this.

Then again, Tonka would have this off and destroyed in about eight seconds. Maybe less.:biting:

I saw I-cord too. Guess we're both dyslexic this morning. :thud:

Y'all sort of got I cord out of this - "length of cord i would need"
