Hat Sizing

I've been talking about hats a lot lately, so I thought I'd share this handy hat sizing list.  Even for those of us with kids, sometimes it's hard to remember the average head circumference of a 3 year old.  

This list leaves out adults.  21"-23" or 53.5 to 58.5cm is pretty typical.  21" is usually an adult small, 22" a medium, which leaves 23" as a large hat size.  This is the kind of information that's nice to keep around when hat making is the order of the day!

*Info for this post comes from Little Lids.

Thanks very much. This is one of the biggest reasons I haven't crocheted any hats. Yours is the first blog I read on a regular basis that's put out this info. Because, you see, I am too lazy to Google such info myself. LOL.

Ah that's really handy! I always wondered how you sized hats for specific ages. Now I can offer sized things! Yay! :D

LOL, apparently my head is the size of a 2-4 year old and my 4 year old has the head size of a 12-24 month old. I always knew my head size was on the small side but put in this way it had me falling off my chair laughing.
