I've just started making amigurumi's, and I'm a beginner to crochet in general as well. When I make heads that are supposed to be spherical, they turn out oblong, like my rows are too tall.
Like this:

See how the head is oblond and too tall? It's like that, even though I did 3 FEWER rows than the pattern says. The pattern is from Ana Paula Rimoli, and as far as I can tell the head is supposed to be round.
Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?

You might be losing some stitches at the join for each row, a particularly tricky spot.  Many patterns have the number of stitches you're supposed to have for a particular row in parenthesis at the end of the row, so you could just make sure at the end of each round that you have the number of stitches you're supposed to have.
