Hat Sizes Chart
*When I say "crown size" I mean the size of the circle before continuing with the non-increasing rows measured from one side to the other. When I say "hat height" it is from the centre of the first row to the bottom of the hat.
It should also be noted that this is a use at your own risk chart, as it makes sense in my little pea-brain, but might not be accurate for everyone.
AGE HEAD CIRC. HAT HEIGHT CROWN SIZE # of increasing rows on
0-3 month 13-14" 5.5"-6" approx 10.5 cm 4 rows G hook
3-6 month 14-17" 6.5-7" approx 11-13 cm 4 rows H hook
6-12 month 16-19" 7.5" approx 13-15 cm 4 rows I hook
12mo-3 year 18-20" 8" approx 14-15.6 cm 5 rows H hook
3-10 year 19-20 1/2" 8.5" approx 15-16 cm 5 rows I hook
Alternately you can try experimenting with the math equation C=πD where d stands for diameter, and c for circumference. For example if you want the circumference of the hat to fit a 41 cm head you want your diameter of the crown to be approx. 13 cm because (π)(13) would equal a 40.82 circumference. But thats just the math geek in me talking :) You tube has a great little tutorial for the mathematically challenged.
