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.

I'd suggest considering a cowl instead. (Poked around...

If you've been working the gusset, there should have been markers you placed in there to show you where to put the increases, correct? So the next time around, instead of working those stitches, you...

Moss stitch: two rows. So for working flat, you'd do:
RS: k1,p1
WS: k1, p1 (knit the knits, purl the purls)

Could you define what you mean by even? If it's the pattern GrumpyGramma posted, it looks to me like the edges come out even, as in straight, but it's probably going to look wonky until you block it.
