DETERMINING HEAD SIZE FOR HATS

hat_measure_head


TO DETERMINE SIZE

Take a measuring tape and place it around the circumference of the head, slightly above the ears, with the tape held fairly closely to the head. Measure your head and then compare the measurement with the table below to find your size .

Finished hats are approximately 1" to 1.5" smaller than head circumference to allow for the stretch in knits.

 

Hat circumference may be larger or smaller depending on the style of the hat. Knit ski caps are generally 5% to 10% smaller than people's heads. Other types of hats are near their head size, sometimes larger, if it's a loose style.
