To make a smaller hat, stop increasing pattern at Rnd 6 or 7 and skip to Rnd 10, continuing with the number of stitches you created in previous round.
To make a larger hat, continue increasing pattern after Rnd 8 a few more rounds until desired diameter is achieved. Then continue from Rnd 10 (with the same number of stitches as last increase round) until desired length is achieved.

You are all done. Happy Harvest and Halloween! Enjoy.
