Do you mean circular needles or double pointed needles? What size and length of cord if that's what you got?

You can do larger baby to adult hats on circs, but smaller will need DPNs. A hat is a good choice to practice with.

I think you can do ML with that length although I think longer is usually recommended. Once you learn the technique you'll be able to do any circular object easy. Most of the patterns are going to say 16 in circs or DPNs so you'll need to figure out ML to do them. There is a video here at KH on ML.

So... There are a ton of baby hats on KPC.

Yeah, you can do hats on 31" circs. You can do ML or a `half ML' where you scootch all the stitches to the left needle and only have a loop on the right side... until you knit up all the sts on the left side.
