The Basics of Hat Sizing

Before crocheting the perfect hat, you'll need to know the basics of hat sizing. Hat sizes are based on the circumference of your head, measured from the forehead to the nape of your neck. Generally, hats will be listed in sizes from extra small to extra large, but some patterns may also include specific measurements in inches or centimeters.

It's also important to note that some crochet hat patterns may be designed to fit a little more snug, while others may be meant to fit more loosely. If you need help with how a crocheted hat should fit, it's best to double-check the pattern's instructions before you start crocheting.

How to Take Crochet Hat Size Measurements

For a good fit, you need to know how to measure crochet hats correctly. If you follow this step-by-step guide, you'll soon be making perfect crochet hats.

Step 1: Measure the Circumference of the Head

Crochet hat sizes are often taken by around the person's head. The head circumference is another name for this measurement. Taken from the person's forehead, this is the circumference of their entire head. Measure the circumference with a flexible tape measure, like the kind used by tailors. Wrap the tape measure snugly around the head, above the ears. Make sure the tape is pulled snug, but not too tight, at all times. Note the number in inches; this will be the hat's circumference when crocheted.

Step 2: Measure the Height of the Head

The next step in measuring for a crochet hat is to get the wearer's head circumference. The length of a person's head, from the top of their head to the base of their ear. This length measurement is crucial for picking the right hat. Again, measure vertically from top to bottom with a pliable measuring tape. This number of inches will serve as a guideline for how long your crochet hat should be.

Step 3: Measure the Width of the Head

The width of the head is the last dimension to record when measuring for a crochet hat. The width of the head is measured in this way. The best way to gauge this is by using a flexible measuring tape to calculate the distance from one temple to the other. Make a note of this number in inches; it will be used to calculate the hat's breadth while crocheting.
