When Design Bogs Down.

From the As Seen In The Movies forum I decided to try and design the Bridget Jones Ski Bunny hat. It is a very simple design. Sketching it out - mapping out the stitches - even looking up how to do a pom-pom was easy (I've never made one before). But, now that I'm knitting up a sample - I can't seem to get the gauge right. The hat is suppose to be 21-22 inches around. I'm doing a combo of k/p across the bottom, so it should be stretchy. But darn it if I can't seem to get the size right. I wonder if the type of yarn I'm going with is hampering me?
