Can anyone tell me where the larger size needles that are listed (I think it is 10.5) are used. In looking over the pattern, I only find where it says to use the smaller size, and so I am confused. I know this is simple, but I am feeling like a dork because I can not find it and do not want to go buy the needles until I know that I need them.

I'm not looking at the pattern at the moment, but I did just finish one of these last week.

I'm not sure if I actually switched needles, but I think you knit an inch of ribbing and then as you switch to knitting the body of the hat, that's where you switch needles? 

You don't have to use the larger needles if you don't have them, your finished product will be less slouchy as a result, the fabric will be tighter, it'll be more like a beanie--close fitting.

I can't say for sure for this pattern but some patterns have to cast on with the larger needles and then switch to the smaller needles so that way the cast on stitch isn't so tight...

You change to the 10.5 circs after the inch in K1P1 ribbing  and before increasing to accommodate the cable pattern.  I made this hat about 2? years ago so I had to look at the pattern again.  Hope this helps!

since there's already a thread on this project, maybe someone could help me out.
i don't really know anyone that knits that can come to my house, or even explain this to me on the phone, but i need help making the brim.

i think i understand most of it.
here's my interpretation
pick up 7 stitches before and after the join, purl a row.
knot, make one, put a marker etc etc...

but what does the SM stand for?
the actual pattern says
K to marker, m1, sm, k10, sm, m1, k to end, pick up 2 stitches from hat cast on edge.

i'm assuming it means slip marker or slide marker or move the marker, but i just want someone to clarify that one for me.
thanks!

Your assumption is correct, SM does mean "slip marker".  You just simply move the marker from your left needle to the right needle.  The markers are just there so that you will continue to make the increases at the correct spots and don't have to count every stitch.  I may have oversimplified, but I hope this helps!
