Do you mean you joined it twisted so that it's shaped like a mobius instead of a ring? If so, if you'd done more than 1 round, I think you have to frog.

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

Yep, if you're still on the first row, you can kind of straighten it out, though the CO at the join will be sorta strange looking. Since it's a hat and not a sweater, maybe go back to the CO and straighten it out.

I just did it the other day for the first time. Frustrating, but it's good that you noticed it early on. You can't fix it other than starting over again.
