It's not beautiful, but it does look warm.  My hats used to look like that on the bottom.  I would just turn the side with the bump around, so it was facing away from my face.  And I would tell my family to do that too, since they all wanted hats, even my hat hating mom.  I have a couple of tips.  One: don't join the rounds, just keep crocheting.  Two: I don't know if you use stitch markers, but I love them.  It's much easier to crochet quickly when you know exactly when your next round starts, without having to count.  And three: slip stitch around the bottom after you've crocheted the hat, and then bind off.  Slip stitching makes it look nice and even.  Hope this helps!

yeah, this is one of the first hats i ever crocheted. it was my "learing to crochet" project but i still love it (the fact that the yarn i used is really soft doesnt hurt lol) Cheesy
