Where can I find a knit hat pattern for a 6 or 7 year old girl?
I have dk yarn.
I did make strawberry hats for 2 year olds now need to make it larger. One pattern calls for 88sts but it's for 2year old and that's a little snug.
If I would use size 5 (original pattern calls for size6 or 7 needles) would I get too many sts and that making the hat too large? or go to a size 8 and would it make the hat smaller. I'm confused on something like increases without a pattern.

This Super Simple Circular Hat Calculator (http://www.earthguild.com/products/knitcroc/marypat/hatcalc.htm) might help you find the right gauge.

This (http://www.thedietdiary.com/knittingfiend/Hats/HeadSizes.html) site has a table for head sizes and this (http://www.thedietdiary.com/knittingfiend/Hats/Hat.html) site has an Easy Roll Brim Hat Generator.

This one says it will fit toddlers to adults, and is just darling!
It uses DK yarn.
HTH!
