2 things:  if you are making a hat on circs and then SWITCH to DPNs later, then you will have more success because of the extra work hanging down, you won't be twisting stitches and stuff.

Or, if this has left a sour taste in your mouth, then you can make a hat without circs OR dpns!  Check out Hip To Knit by Judith Schwartz.  The Fat Hats are so cute and easy and each only took me one evening.  The yarn they call for is pretty pricy, so I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick.  It uses EXACTLY one ball so you might buy 2 for insurance...I've had to make the tassels different colors before (different than the hat, I mean) because I ran out of yarn.  You can do either of the hat patterns:  they are pretty much the same with differences in the finishing.
