starfaerie, check your tension...that was my problem in the past with a lot of things I was crocheting, and being self-taught I never knew otherwise, I just thought that EVERY pattern I ever followed was lying...
A girl in my class was looking at some of my earlier hats and made the comment that they would be practically wind-proof because of my tension. It's fine for amigurumi, but when making hats, blankets, etc, try to loosen up a little. Or, get a hook bigger than recommended to make your stitches bigger.

In rows 6-8, the directions say 6: ch 3, 1 dc in each st around. Join. [60].  Am  I supposed to chain 3 before every dc?

I can answer this one too.
Let me know if I'm kind of taking your thunder here, ArrghMatey...

but the answer is, no, you do not ch3 before each dc. Instead, after you join the previous round with sl st, ch 3, then dc in each next stitch as indicated. The ch 3 counts as a stitch, then 59 dc's, equals 60 stitches.

This was actually super easy! I used a lighter weight yarn (Bernat Satin Sport) and a K hook and made sure to keep everything very loose. I also added another increasing row to ensure optimum slouch, and a 4th row of puffs because I love them Smiley
And someone asked what the top looked like... so I took a picture of that too. Ignore the imminent cat attack on the side!

okay so if someone could help me out, that'd be awesome  Cheesy i did something wrong i just don't know what! i am on row 6 and instead of doing 60 dc's around i seriously did about 200! the yarn is getting super bunchy around the outside, like so: (it's kindof hard to see but maybe someone can help!)

please and thank you  Smiley

love, it looks like you're dc'ing in each stitch around...which would account for all the extra stitches....
double-check the pattern against your work...make sure you have the right stitches in each round before moving on (it's easier to frog one row than a whole hat)
with the increases (rnd 4, for reference), after your sl st join, you ch 3, then dc in the same spot, then dc ONCE in each of the next 2 stitches, and dc TWICE in the next stitch. As you progress to later rounds, you still ch 3 and dc in the same stitch, but then dc only ONCE per stitch, evenly spacing the 2dc increases. {Eg: rnd 4 dc ONCE in two stitches, TWICE in one stitch, rnd 5 dc ONCE in THREE stitches, TWICE in one stitch, rnd 6 dc ONCE in FOUR stitches, TWICE in one stitch} This way, you get a circle that increases evenly each round, and it won't ripple like yours has...

I hope this helps and makes sense... If you can master even increases in a circle like this, you can modify it to make just about any hat you want (and lots of other things too) without a pattern.
If you still need help, or what I said doesn't make sense, pop back in and i'll see what i can do...

Thank you for the pattern!  I made this slouchy hat using Vanna's Choice and added a crocheted 7-petal flower with a button on the side.  It turned out cute if I may say so Smiley
