View Full Version : What size?

01-07-2010, 01:42 PM
I wanted to make a simple beanie for the 2 year old son of my friend and wanted it to be a surprise. He turned 2 in September, is there any generic sizing that anyone knows of? The hat will be very stretchy but if it is best that I find a way to measure him than I will.

Most patterns for hats just give sizes like 0-3 mos, 2-4, etc. Since they are stretchy just following one that's for his age range should be fine. Here's a few links to check out.

Here's a basic hat formula type pattern (http://www.mielkesfarm.com/bsic_hat.htm). And here's a chart for head sizes (http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/headsize.html).

And I'm working on the laptop without my links.... ;)

The one for the hat was posted the other day, so I still had the link in my history; the head sizes chart is part of the craft yarn council of america site and they have other size charts too.
