Help what size circular needle?

Beginner here...i finally found a skull cap that my husband likes and I am getting ready to knit it for him, but the pattern only says to use 10 US size circular needles - not the length . The cap is 23" in circumference - what length circular needles should I use? I'm thinking 16"??

New Scarf & Surgery

Hello Everyone. I haven't been posting for awhile as I have been dealing with all that precedes hip replacement surgery. I have been in pain for a couple years and this year it just got to be too much, so Nov. 9 I go in for a right-hip replacement. I am not looking forward to the rehab, but I am looking forward to no more hip/leg pain.

A simple "me" project

I have no idea why but I started knitting on a stocking cap a few weeks ago. It's set to the side quite often to work on other projects.

Socks for mom

When I first started doing socks, I was only doing worsted-weight things, mostly based on the Thuja pattern. Mom got two pairs but later I "graduated" to fingering weight yarn and decided it was time I made her a pair out of it. I decided to use some yarn that I dyed myself. It was supposed to be denim blue-violet and deep "navy purple," but the darker color came out more of a khaki.

Socks for myself!

I've been making so many socks for other people that I decided it was time to make a pair for myself. Winter is on its way after all.
