I knit the hat; it turns out great!
When I did it, I kept the extra stitches on the needles and used stitch markers to denote where the last short row ended. That way I knew where I should stop knitting and turn the work. It makes things a lot easier
There's also a video in the 'advanced techniques' section. You don't have to knit the wrapped yarn at the end - it still looks great without.
Hope this helps!
