hi, welcome to the ville!  i didn't see on the Favecrafts page where it tells the size so i looked at the original Red Heart pattern http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/streetwise-brim-hat   Just posting that for reference.

there is a formula for getting a top down hat the correct size. i will come back and post a link.

http://cre8tioncrochet.com/2013/04/how-to-design-your-own-custom-crochet-hat/   this explains how to work a top-down to the correct size.  Your pattern increases in diameter thru round 13, so check your diameter at that point.  if its not big enough you will need to keep increasing at the same rate you have been, adding 6 sts each round.  

I don't like to make crocheted hats too much smaller than the actual head measurement, because my hats never seem to be very stretchy.  But i would say you should make it to the size you think you need, then have him try it on.  You can adjust from there.  The stretchiness of your yarn will be a major factor in the fit.  Since the hat is all sc, that isn't a  very stretchy stitch pattern.

Thank you again! I ended up scrapping the pattern and custom-making a hat for my husband since the site you shared made it so easy! In fact, my 8 year old has already started her own hat, and it’s going beautifully! Here’s the one I made:
