16" circs are good for sweater necks and sleeves. I agree that for a tiny hat, though, two circs or magic loop is the way to go if you don't want to use dpns. Iven if you start with a 12 inch circ, you'll still have to switch to something else when the circumference gets too small for those.

Don't give up on circ, though. Once you have the right size, it is a real pleasure to knit round and round. No seam at the end, either.

Amy's video on the 2 circs is great. I think it is easier than DPN's on some stuff. I've also been using the one long cord method on some gloves and that works fine too. I don't think either is to difficult to get the hang of, especially if you're not a total beginning knitter.
