I tried this pattern today, and unfortunately my hat wound up looking all funky.  Instead of the body of the hat being round, it's all lumpy looking.  I included a picture, but I took it with my cell phone so it's a pretty awful shot.  I'm not sure how this got so botched, but I'm thinking maybe the gauge of the needle or the weight of the yarn?  I think I followed the pattern properly.  Any thoughts?

When I made the first one, I just winged it. If you can make a hat you can do this easy. Just pick a big hook and start out like your making a regular hat, just keep incresing until it's bigger than normal. It should pretty much lay in a giant flat circle until you stop the increases. When you start the 1dc in each around that'll make it loosely bowl shaped. and the decreases make it actually fit. Feel free to shoot me a pm if you have any questions.
