Technically you should count them on the knit side, the sts look like Vs. But you can do the purl side.

ok well that didnt work either and when I did the pattern for a bit, I binded off my stitches to see if the circumfrence would go around my head and it doesnt, 40 stitches is way to small

Figure out how much too small, then add that many sts. You may need only 4 more or 8 or even 16.

No actualy it was 13 then come to find out those were the ones for the scarf. Im such a knitters dolt somtimes...
But I had already started doing the hat a different way and think this is going to work..I am using #9 needles and casted on 90 stitches, and the circumfrence works, Im just trying to figure out the depth of the hat. Im not doing the color pattern just in Blue and so far Im just about the total for the pattern and it still seems to shallow ..Ill just keep going, and checking Thanks guys

A hat for an adult is usually knit about 7" before you begin the decreases, a little more if you want the cuff to turn up.
