View Full Version : Hats/Circ question

10-19-2005, 05:16 PM
Iím going to be making a few hats with WOTA (will get Merino next time, as I heard it is softer)
For young boys/men, what size circ would you use, and does anyone have a basic pattern?

TIA!! 

I found thissimple hat calculator (http://www.earthguild.com/products/knitcroc/marypat/hatcalc.htm), but I've never used it, I always use this one (http://www.mielkesfarm.com/bsic_hat.htm) and love it! And I found some head sizes (http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/head-sizes.html).
Depending upon the age...I have never had to go below 16" but if you are knitting a hat for a baby you may need to go 12", although I really don't know baby head sizes...which is why I sent the head size chart to you ;) !!
I used 16" circs for my nephew when he was 2, if that helps any
have fun ;)

I'd go with 16", too.
