I want to make Knitty's Toasty Topper (http://knitty.com/issuewinter07/PATTtoasty.html) for my son, but he's almost five, and has a big head, so I'm thinking I need to make it a little bigger.  Do you think using bulkier yarn and bigger needles will be okay?  I know enough about knitting to know you can do that with some stuff, but not enough to know whether it works in every case?  What do you think?

Yes, using thicker yarn and larger needles should make it larger. The hat is done with 2 strands of worsted, which is usually thicker than bulky, but going up to a size 10.5 or 11 needle will make it much larger.  Measure you son's head and subtract an inch then try to get that measurement.
