View Full Version : Hat size measurement list?

04-15-2007, 11:15 PM
I wish to make various hats and one pattern I was working stated that I should crochet until hat measured 14mm long.

I would like the circumference and length (height) of a hat per size like
for 3-6 m old such and such a size, etc.. Does anyone know if there is a list like that online?

This pattern (http://www.mielkesfarm.com/bsic_hat.htm) is the "basics" for putting a hat together.

This site (http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/size-chart.html) has sizing information and TONS of free patterns for charity knitting.

I hope this helps you with what you are looking for!

My public health nurse gave me the exact measurements for a newborn to 3 months.
I can get the exact measurement for 3-6 from a medical standpoint too if you would like, I see her Thursday.

The average full term baby is born with a head of 14-14.5 inches and it grows to 15- 15.5 inches by three months of age.

This is also the exact size of a "kid size" boy cabbage patch doll's head!

So if it fits a cabbage patch doll it will fit a baby!

Thanks for asking that question! I was wondering the same thing, as I wanted to make some hats for gifts. Those 2 sites are really helpful.
