I'm working on this hat too. I just finished the short row part this afternoon. It's my first time doing short rows, but they are super easy! I tend to get nervous trying something new. I sounded like an idiot though, talking to myself through every step - "okay Laura, wrap, slip, wrap back, slip back and turn". Thank goodness I was home alone!
I didn't watch the video that suzeeq posted. I saw one done by Cat Bordhi on Youtube.
Good luck on the hat! I'd can't wait to see your finished project! What yarn are you using?
