What brand are they? Now you know why most of us knit with Knitpicks, Addis and the like. If you do a search on interchangeable needles you'll find many threads onthe topic.

Been there, done that. I use circulars for everything now. I'm not chasing rolling needles around the floor, poking someone sitting next to me, or digging them out of the sofa. You can push your work onto the cables when you take a break and the stitches won't fall off the needle.

I actually like Boye needles - the tips are pointy which can be helpful and I use them for magic loop which a lot people say you can't because the cords are stiff. They are, but I can make it work.

I've used mine with entrelac, the cords are only too stiff if you want to do something like magic loop.

An entrelac hat? After you join, you don't really work in the round unless there's ribbing. At least on the hats I've seen - you turn and work on the WS too and only join the edges of the triangles or blocks at the end of each 'tier'. If you're using a 16" that might be the problem. Use the 16" to cast on and work the edge/ribbing, then use longer ones to do the blocks with.

Lol no not entrelac hats, just hats in general xD I'm not crazy enough to try that

Oh, regular ones. What size is the needle? Do you know about single loop? It works for needles that are too short or stiff for ML.
