Is this hat knitted flat or in the round?

If it is flat, you may really want to chart it out.  That way, you'll "see" how the lace pattern works, and should also be clued into any weirdnesses in the number of stitches per row.

Also, I find knitting from something that is a visual representation of a pattern so much easier than reading all that k,p,ssk,p,yo gobbledegook.  I'm a pretty advanced lace knitter, and I always, always lose my place in non-charted lace.

Does this make sense?  Are you familiar with the symbols used in charting knitting?  It really is cool! I don't bother with a spreadsheet, just graph paper and a pencil!

Wow! I'm away from the boards for a month and come back to all of these nice posts about my lacecap. Thanks everyone! Mols, I'm sorry I wasn't able to answer your question about the lace knitting (I'm on semester break from school. Actually, knit-goddess Melidomi answered this very same question for me while I was working on this project. She is the best  Wink Woolgathered, I always feel like a little elf maiden when I'm wearing this hat, especially when my ears are sticking out  Grin
