My first crochet project

Right before the end of 2012, I decided I needed to learn to crochet. Here is my first project. 

I followed the instructions {or so I thought} and ended up with an odd bulge in the top of one's very visible in this first picture: 

Overall I was pleased to get this project finished, but I'll probably tear it all out and start over simply because of the bulge and because it doesn't really fit on either of my kid's heads:

Oh well. I'm going to keep practicing! Have you attempted anything new lately? Any crochet pointers out there?
