Since you're not using a pattern, your best bet would be to make a gauge swatch to see how many stitches you get to an inch. Knit a square a little more than 4" wide and 4" long. Then you can measure how many stitches you need to get the width you want.

That's the 'correct' way.

What I would probably do is look at some kid's patterns to get an idea of how many stitches they call for to cast on for a hat his size and go from there.

It's really up to you. You know best what you can do and how willing you are to mess up once or twice.
