Go to www.bevscountrycottage.com. Bev has all kinds of patterns for babies and children. You should find what you need there. She also has measurements and size charts that will be helpful to you.

Knit a 4 by 4 inch swatch in stockinette. Determine how many stitches per inch you knit. Multiply that number by the measurement. For instance, if I knit 5 stitches per inch on a certain size needle and my hat measurement is 20 inches, I would need to cast on 100 stitches. 5 times 20. Hope this helps.
