Okay - related follow-up question:
How long/tall for a 1-2 yr old hat? I've found this other size list
. Freaked out by the woman at MLYS (her child was born
with 19" head), I am following this size (from chart linked above):
Toddler - preschooler (12 months - 3 years) Hat height = 8"
Head Circumference: 18" to 20"
and making a 19" hat (19.3" with 58st. @3st/in).
It sounds like I should make it 8" long but that would normally include decrease shaping at the top, wouldn't it? I am reworking this pattern
which has a sudden close (and making a four-cornered hat not three). Right now I'm at 7" and it looks huge. I was thinking I should end at 7.5-7.75" instead?
I know that close-seam will take some fabric off the head but should the length really be 8"? Just double-checking since I don't have a kidlet to wrangle and size the hat.
