That's adorable! You did a great job on the cables!

You can use bigger needles and it will be slightly bigger, but the stitch will also be looser. The bigger the needles more open it'll be. Not always what you want for a hat that is supposed to be warm. If you liked fabric on the first hat and want it the same on the second hat then use more stitches not bigger needles.
