Are you just starting an in-the-round project? I thought you were on the verge of finishing it; I'm confused.

If you're starting a project and are having trouble joining in the round without twisting your work, lay your project on top of a table, turn the cast-on row to the inside, double check all the way around to make sure that the cast-on side is still on the inside and not twisted anywhere; then knit the first stitch of the round. During this joining, I often leave the project mostly lying on the table so I don't twist anything.

If that's not what you need help with, please give us some more info so we can help you better.

Here's a video that may also help with the technique Antares described for joining in the round without twisting.

It's good to read ahead so that you know where the pattern is going and you can plan out how to knit the various steps. Sometimes, however there are stitches or directions that don't make sense until you have the sts on the needle. Good luck with the hat!

I always read the whole pattern before I start, but I trust some things will make more sense when I get there and they usually do.
