Bev's Guidelines for making hats

Children-Adult hats

Critter Caps - animal hats galore

Newborn and baby hats at bottom of page

Pioneer Bonnets

Simple hat calculator - offsite

Great yarn for making hats:


* Height given is measured BEFORE the brim is already folded up - from the base of the un-folded up brim to the center top of hat.  They can be made taller if you want a larger brim to fold up - I like the brim fold up over the ears for added warmth.  On newborn hats I plan to fold up about 1" to turn up for the brim, on adult hats I usually figure 2" to 3" so ears are covered.

Head Circumference 13" - 14 "  hat circ = 11.5" - 13" Hat height = 5.5 to 6"

Baby - 3 to 6 months  
Head Circumference: 14" - 17 "  Hat height= 6.5 - 7"

Baby 6 to 12 months
Head Circumference: 16" - 19 "   Hat height = 7.5"

Toddler - preschooler (12 months - 3 years) 
Head Circumference: 18" to 20 "   Hat height = 8"

Child (4 - 10 years) 
Head Circumference: 19" - 20 1/2"  Hat height =8.5"

Pre-teens and Teens 
Head Circumference: 20 1/2" - 22"   Hat height 9-10"

Adult Woman
Head Circumference:  21.5" - 22.5"  Hat height = 11" 

Adult Man
Head Circumference:  23" - 24"  Hat height = 11"-11.5"

Mob Caps for kids

For the Babies and Toddlers- newborn babies lose up to 30%-50% of their body heat through the top of their heads. Hats are essential yet so many babies do not have even a simple hat. You can fix that by making a simple hat!

Some of Bev's Guidelines for making hats

 - these are things I learned from years of making hats and receiving many hats made by others.

 Always make hats a minimum of 6" - 9" tall  (see size chart at top of page)  In the past I have received many hats that were "for children and teens" that were more like skull caps.  I was able to crochet some extra rows around them to make them warm.  (If you don't know sizes or have a child nearby to try hats on, then please refer to my handy dandy size charts!)

HOWEVER... please don't make hats that are so huge you could add a handle and have a grocery bag!! If they fit your head or your husbands, they will fit a human. If not... not so much!

 Be sure hats are warm enough - hats with gaps and holes are not warm. Try it on your head and use a hair dryer to test it. If you feel that air directly on your head, they are going to feel cold winds too!  You may wish to use 2 strands held together. Consider making a larger brim that will fold way up over the ears.

 Again along those lines, if you crochet tightly, please make sure you can still open up and stretch the hat, especially the brim. I often get newborn crocheted hats made with a stiffer yarn like Red Heart Classic or even bulky yarn (!) that end up way too tight. Put your hands inside and try to stretch the hat. If it won't stretch without a lot of effort, it won't work. Hand knitted hats are usually fine for stretch as they don't work up so 'thick'.

 If you use WOOL please attach a label to indicate that. (This is for possible washing problems, and for allergies)

 Make 'charity hats' the same way you would make them for family or friends for gifts. Make them good enough to sell!

 If you smoke PLEASE wash hats at a non-smokers home! In addition to using detergent, adding a cup of white vinegar helps remove the odors. Please DO NOT spray items with perfume or put them in ziplocks with a scented dryer sheet. It won't work. If you have pets you may want to wash them items too because of allergies.
