I just go ahead with my standard cast-on in situations like that. The backwards loop one is going to create less of a ridge on the inside since there's less yarn involved, but I don't like it. I find...

I don't put my markers on my stitches, so in order to later follow the directions exactly for Row 5, I would put my marker before the K1 in the row you just described. So, K14, M1, place marker, K1,...

Agree with Jan. You aren't going to really be able to do a hat on a 29" circular. Especially if you're doing this to learn to knit in the round.
