You started knitting the wrong direction and you don't have to 'transfer' the sts, just begin knitting with a dpn instead of the other end of the circular. That way you'll keep going the same way you have been. Undo the round you've done, flip the hat inside out and with the working yarn on the right needle that's closer to you, start over. The needles should be between you and the hat.
