View Full Version : HELP! I need the circumference of toddler's head

03-23-2010, 04:17 PM
I just finished a toddler's pullover and want to knit a hat to go with it.
With 45 years of knitting books, you'd think I'd have something with a plain, ordinary hat for tot. NOPE!
Babies and kids, but none for a tot.

Anyone here with a child 18 to 24 months old who could put a measuring tape around their head for me?
I'm hoping I will be able to take an average of several measurements.

The age of the child with the measurement would be appreciated.

Thanks for any and all help I can get.

Here's another chart (http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/headsize.html) for various head sizes.

Thank you sooooo much, Abby and Suzeeq!

Now I can get started this evening. Maybe I'll be able to get pictures posted before too long.

I've saved both charts for future reference.
