Circular knitting idjit with a question

Hi, I would like to make the booga bag. I have the pattern, I have the yarn (cascade 220), I have the Denise circular needles and the dpn…what I don’t know is…

The pattern says I need a 16" or 24" US 10 1/2 cicular needle. Is the 16" counted from the tip of one needle to the tip of the other needle? or is it counted just the inches of the cicular part? I would assume that it is the entire length, from tip to tip. But you know what they say about assuming.

Length of circular needles is measured from needle tip to needle tip. :thumbsup:

you are an angel. Now I can start. WOO HOO!!! :cheering:
