Yarn Along - Help a (Birthday) Girl Out Edition

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

What. The. Heck. happened to my hat??  Why on earth is it pointy?  I followed the pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts, and it doesn't look a thing like the beautiful hat in the pictures.

I think this could win the prize for "Stupidest Hat Ever Knit".  So, help me out -- where did I go wrong?  Admittedly, this my first attempt with DPNs and I wonder if my gauge tightened when I switched from circulars to DPN?
Please help me before I botch this one, too!
