I want to try it on the circular needles but didn't know how long a cord to attach to the tips . I have a set of the Denise interchangeable needles . I don't knit much so I knew someone here would know how long a cord for the 48 stitches
Even the shortest cord may be too long for this many stitches, especially if it's a thin or medium weight yarn. You'll probably have to use a longer cord and the Magic Loop or single loop technique. With a 5mm and worsted weight, that would only be 12" around and I'm not sure Denise's cords even make a 16" needle.

Or like the post above says - use 2 cords, with the right size needle on one end and a smaller on the other. Then always make sure the correct size is in the right hand.
