There's no way to work a #6 super bulky yarn with a 3.5mm needle without damaging the needle and your hands, so I'll pass on this one.

This design is charming. But if I make it, I'll try to do it in one piece on a round needle - I'm old, and I don't like to sew things together.

I agree whole heartedly. I use circular needles for almost everything, even straight knitting. You can use them on an airplane without worrying about poking your seat mate!
