As Lisa R says, you need one that's the correct size OR you can use magic loop if the needle is longer than the item you want to knit. Hats are usually about 20-24" so of course 27" is too long. I use 24" to knit hats, but have to sort of ML it until I get a couple inches on the needle, then it works fine until I get to the top where I need to ML again.
