The side with short rows will look kind of warped, right? Is that the idea?
Most hats are knitted the other direction and they make the hat get smaller at the top by decreasing (often every other round/row as you go up after you have the height you want). To get that same sort of effect with this hat knit sideways they are making some of the rows shorter to take out some of the width at the top and make the hat come to a dome.
