Here's a couple links that might help, too.

Hat size chart -
http://community.knitpicks.com/notes/Size_Chart_-_Hats
Simple Hat Calculator -

I knit hats for charity and my standard is worsted weight yarn, CO about 80, length about 6-6.5" then decrease. Length can depend on your edge treatment.. with a folded brim the length needs to be 2.5-3" longer.

Although mine are shorter than Cindys they do cover the ears.
