Is there a way you can cut the needles down so they're about 4-4" long? But even so, just use the magic or single loop with a longer cord.

no, I am afraid to cut the needles, cause then if I screw them up I have to wait forever for a replacement, and will have to buy an entire set again. I will check out the magic loop thing, I do the magic loop in crochet, so I might already know what that is, but I will check it out to see.

Magic ring or loop or circle in crochet isn't anything like magic loop in knitting. In knitting it a way to use a long cabled circular needle to do smaller diameter knitting in the round.

ok watched the video, nope that won't help in this situation, since it is an intarsia pattern (ear flap hat with peace signs) that I converted to a textured (intarsia is purled on the RS, knit on the WS), and 75 stitches long. It wasn't that hard to knit it flat, and my seams don't show unless I want them to, and I am half way through the hat now, anyway. But, thank you all for all your help and comments!

Intarsia in the round is a bit tricky anyway. Sounds like a cute hat. Post a phote when you finish if you'd like. We'd love to see it.
