Can you HELP

I want to make a purse and it calls for 10" circle needles 24". But all I can find is 29" does anyone know if the lenght of the cable really matters?
Thanks for you help

The length of the cable is very important. If the cable is too long for the number of stitches, they just won’t fit around.

There are ways to knit in the round using two circular needles, or the magic loop method, though.
