Hat Pattern for 6/7 year old girl
Where can I find a knit hat pattern for a 6 or 7 year old girl?
I have dk yarn.
I did make strawberry hats for 2 year olds now need to make it larger. One pattern calls for 88sts but it's for 2year old and that's a little snug.
If I would use size 5 (original pattern calls for size6 or 7 needles) would I get too many sts and that making the hat too large? or go to a size 8 and would it make the hat smaller. I'm confused on something like increases without a pattern.
I knitted a babies hat from Cottage Industry, the pattern is sweetpea baby set, but I need to knit something called 'monk's cord' which attaches/sewn to the corners of the hat. My question is What is Monk's Cord/how is this knitted?

This Super Simple Circular Hat Calculator might help you find the right gauge.

This site has a table for head sizes and this site has an Easy Roll Brim Hat Generator.

This one says it will fit toddlers to adults, and is just darling!
It uses DK yarn.
