So I finally did it. My camera isn't working so no pics yet, but it actually came out the right size for a grown-up head. The only thing I'll alter if I make another adult-sized Raw Chicken Viking Hat is to make the drumsticks a bit bigger (they look kinda dinky on the bigger hat).
The pattern is mostly the same as the baby one with these few adjustments:

- with 3.75mm circular needles (US5), cast on 102 st.
- do 6 rounds seed stitch
- switch to 4mm circular (US6) needles and do 24 rounds in the 4-row gooseflesh pattern (as in the original pattern)
- *k2tog, k15, place marker* repeat all the way around so you have 6 sections
- continue in goosebumps pattern, reducing on odd-numbered rounds, until you have 54 stitches left (8 reducing rounds)
- change to reducing on every round until only 6 st left, break off yarn and pull through

- EARFLAPS - mark centre back, count 13 st forward along bottom edge, pick up 24 st
                 - do 3 rows seed stitch then begin reducing as per original pattern

- DRUMSTICKS - mine came out looking a tad small so next time I'll maybe increase by ~20% (making it pick up 30 st in back-slanting oval instead of just 25) and starting about 15 rows above edging

- the rest is the same (ties, feet, etc) and came out OK

I hope this helps anyone who has been looking to make a bigger version.

Congrats on figuring out the adult size version! Mine never progressed far enough for the drumsticks. Sad I'm sending "get fixed quick" vibes to your camera so we can see a picture!
