View Full Version : Are all Hats the same size?

None of the hat patterns I've found (Straight needles) have size indications for the finished product - or an indication of how to adjust the size.

I'm knitting for two different sized children - any ideas?

I would look for patterns specifically designed for kids. They do have smaller heads, and even adults hat sizes can vary quite a bit. If you want to use the pattern you found, measure the kids' head circumferences and subtract about 10% for negative ease -- so the hats fit snugly. Then adjust your pattern for the new measurement.
