I have the perfect answer! dont make a hat in the round, crochet vertically.  I searched for the perfect hat pattern for a while befor i found one that i liked.  It's really easy and looks great. You can't even tell that they are vertical rows, everyone thinks it's made in rounds. 
Thick and Warm Hat

Worked with two strands of 4 ply worsted yarn held together. 
Hint: each row will always start in single crochet and end in double crochet. If it doesnt start pulling stitches.

Ch 31- if making adjustments, KEEP THIS NUMBER ODD!! Chain should be around 9 inches for adult hat.
Row 1: sc in second ch form hook, dc in next st; repeat sc, dc pattern to end, ending with dc; ch 1 turn 30 sts
Row 2: Sc in first st, dc in next (pattern made); repeat pattern to end, ending with dc; ch 1 turn
Row 3: Repeat pattern for next 28 sts (or two sts from the end) ending with dc; ch 1 turn- 28 sts in row
Row 4: Repeat row 2
Row 5: Repeat pattern for next 28 sts, drop down to Row2 sc in next st, dc in last st; ch 1 turn- 30 sts in row
Repeat Rows 2-5 until widest end is 21 or to fit, most peoples heads are the same size, so if it fits you it should be good and yarn stretches.
Finishing:  Fasten off and whipstitch back seam together.  Weave yarn through shorter top edge of hat and gather tightly. Knot. Fold up end for brim of hat. TADA! Congratulations, Project complete

I used a J crochet hook.  I also make it with two-ply sportweight yarn and then i use an I hook.  It works up in about 3hrs, at a steady pace.

ok well I tried Geekmagnet's way of doing it, but I made my chain way too tight and the ends were completely different lengths, so it didn't sew together well at all....no workie...POOP!
