It's worsted yarn 5mm I've never done magic loop so to do a magic loop transfer sounds a bit scary

You don't have to transfer the stitches to start magic loop. You can just knit onto the larger circular needle and continue on with the pattern using magic loop. If there aren't too many more increases, you could knit onto the smaller circular and continue that way.

Yes, change over to circs; a lot of patterns will start out with dpns for the center, but when there gets to be too many stitches, will say to switch. You can move to the other needles even if it doesn't say to. Just start knitting with the circular, if you slip the sts to another needle there's a greater risk of dropping them and it's not necessary to do it that way. Just begin the next round with the circular in your right hand instead of the empty dpn.

Don't 'transfer' the stitches, just knit them onto the new needle. Maybe the new needle is a larger size?

With magic loop? The way I do it is knit across half of them, then pull a loop of cable out and knit the other half. I prefer a long cable so I have two loops. Sue seems to like modified ML. Personal preference.

Once you learn this method it's so nice to say make a hat from start to finish without changing needles!

Don't put it on the other needle at all. Just start a new row out with the new needle instead of the old needle.

You have the stitches on the dpns and normally you would start a new round with an empty dpn. Instead, begin knitting with the other needle, going the same way as if you were using the empty dpn. It shouldn't be tight unless you're trying to do something different to it. Here's a video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSF-UrOmzFQ

Did you just knit from the needles or did you actually slip them to the other needles. This video is showing socks and just changing circs but you'd do the same thing to switch from dpns to circs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSF-UrOmzFQ

I'm getting confused am I supposed to be using a magic loop method???

That video shows a lady already using circulars to transfer to another circular. I have 104 stitches right now divided on 4 DPN's and I'm still not done with the increases. I'm confused what I'm doing wrong :(
