Just for terminology's sake, what you have is a circular needle. A cable needle is a short needle used to hold stitches to make cable in knitting. Not a big deal. Anyway, knitting large objects back and forth on circular needles is extremely common. Sometimes the number of stitches just don't fit across a regular straight needle.

So you're idea is exactly the way to make something that big. Good luck with it!
