ok so I gave up on using the number US 13. I bought some yarn 192m, 10 x 10cm, medium #4, 100g. I have 4 double pointer needles size US 8. I looked for videos on how to knit on the round with double pointed needles but it looked kinda complicated on the video. Can anybody give me some light on how to start this project now that I have the actual stuff that the pattern asks for?

I know I have to cast on 10 sts but how do I divide that between 4 needles?

If you have 10sts cast on you can slide off 3sts onto one dpn, another 3sts onto a second dpm and 4sts onto the third dpn. Use the 4th needle as your working needle. There's a video under the Free Videos tab at the top of the page, Advanced Techs, Small Diameter Circular Knitting that may help.
(But if you're making the same pattern that you initially posted, the brim sts are just knit straight back and forth until you have a long strip which will go around your head and form the headband of the beanie.Then you'll join the strip in a circle and pick up sts along one side for the body of the hat.)

To start out with, you don't join the sts for the pattern above, just use 2 needles and work a 10 stitch garter strip, then you sew the cast on and bind off edges together. After that, you'll pick up sts around one edge of the headband, that's when you'll need all the needles and it will be 'joined' after you pick up all the sts.

I appreciate the help from everyone. I don't know much about knitting and really want to learn. I don't have someone to personally show me so its kinda hard to figure out stuff.

Would a 16in size US8 circular needle work for a beanie our do I need a longer one?

That will work fine, but after you begin the decreases the stitches won't be long enough to fit the needle. You can either use dpns at that point, add a second needle and use both or use a longer one magic loop style.
