I am about to start on this capelet
. The pattern calls for 40" circulars but I only have 24" in those sizes. The cast on is 276 stitches. Do I really need the 40"? I'm a little cash-poor at the moment and would rather not make that purchase if I don't have to. I don't like knitting sweaters in the round (weird I know) and so I don't have much future need for really long circulars either. Thanks for reading!
