Adjusting size for a baby hat
Id like to make this hat:

http://sasw.blogspot.com/2006/03/inf...rflap-hat.html

for a friend to go along with a sweater I made in 18 month size. Can anyone suggest how I would adjust the amount of cast on stitches to do that?

Either use a size 8 or 9 needle, or CO 72 sts. Make it about 6-7 inches long before the decreases.

You do realize, that you need to divide the 72 sts by your sts/inch to make sure what measurement that comes out at....?

ummm... what?

Do you mean to divide the 72 by the number of stitches to make sure its a larger circumference than as the pattern is written now?

Yes, to make sure it's going to be the right size.
