Quick reference guide for creating hats
This is an Average Hat Size Chart. There are a few items to keep in mind. Subtract 2 inches from the head size measurement to get the correct hat size. If the head size measures to be 12 inches then your hat size would need to be approx. 10 inches.
As with many crochet project this chart is just a guideline as there are many factors that can contribute to determining the correct size. Such as type of yarn, hook size used, tightness in your stitch work.
Acrylic yarn has more of a stretch than cotton yarn. So keep in mind when working with cotton yarn you may need to subtract one inch from your head measurement to take into account the lack of stretch. Example if you measure 12 inches for your head size you will need to create 11 inches for the hat.
As with many of my projects, creating a crochet beanie, hat can be done in many different ways. Learning how to crochet should be a relaxing process but it can take time to develop a technique that works best for you.
My goal is to show you how to create beautiful crochet projects from a beginner’s perspective.
