Don't forget that knitting every row flat gives you garter stitch, with ridges on both sides, whereas knitting every row in the round gives stocking stitch. Stocking's nice actually and I prefer it for hats, but if you want to keep it garter stitch in the round you need to knit one round, then purl the next round, then knit a round, purl a round, etc. And your gauge for stocking stitch is probably different from that for garter.
Don't forget to switch your first and last cast-on stitches - put one on the other needle beside other end stitch, pull that end stitch off its needle, through the first end stitch which you have just moved, and onto the other needle. Crochet hook helps there. The two end stitches will now have switched places. I find this is the best way to eliminate the jog you get in the round.

Or you can cast on one extra stitch, and knit the first and last ones together. That works very well too.

Ingrid, I already have a question. I am suppose to cast on 113sts and since I am taking off 4sts I am CO 109sts. My ribbing is K1, P2 repeat. So how should I change the ribbing on the round so I have it flowing at the end.

Cast on 108 or 111. It doesn't have to be *exactly* 4 stitches less if you have to fit a stitch pattern in.
