Great hat, just take out the point.

If you want a more rounded scull-cap, do not knit even rounds (2 & 4) increase every round until there are 8 sts between markers. (48 sts) then follow instructions.

Also to add Ties at end instead of bind off:

K2, ssk, K, (total 4 sts) ending with RS facing.  Using remaining 4 sts and dpn, knit 7” of “I-cord”, In lieu of the two 2 ½“ pom-poms.
