Using larger needles will make the hat larger.

But, at some point if you are using the same yarn as for the child's hat, the adult hat will start to become lacey/holey, which may not be what you want in a hat.

If you want the hat to use the same yarn as the child's hat and to have the same thickness/texture, then you should use the same size needles, but cast on more stitches. How many to cast on will depend on the desired circumference and whether or not the child's pattern is a multiple of some number.
