This is something that may be much easier in practice. Start either with something like 24sts, 8 on each needle or knit back and forth for a row or two before knitting onto dpns. Another easy way to get started is to knit a beanie on a small circular needle and then knit onto dpns for the decreases at the crown.
Numbering doesn't work because the working needle (the 4th needle) keeps being incorporated into the project as you knit around.
