Head Measurement for Hat - Crochet Tip #50

The most accurate way to get a custom fit for a hat, is to measure the head, working your modified pattern to a head measurement. If a gauge is available with the pattern, that will also give you an idea on how close your crochet style is to that of the author of the pattern.

The easiest way to change size with a hat pattern is to use a larger or smaller crochet hook. Another way to change size is to eliminate rounds for a smaller hat or do additional rounds with increase stitches for a larger hat.

The following chart is an estimate for various size heads.
