Sure! Hats are one of the easier things to make (which accounts for why I make so many!) I just wouldn't recommend it as a first project. Sooner or later you have to make peace with a circular with short tips, but I found them hard to manage until I got a little more comfortable. That said, my first experiences were on straight needles, so getting used to the (relatively) shorter tips on circulars -- even the longer ones -- took a bit of adjustment in general.
