Hat Sizing Chart

I refer to this chart A LOT! You’ll hear me mention it in videos; you’ll see it included in some of my patterns and I often refer to it when I’m working on a hat! The actual info in the chart came from a blog called Slugs on the Refrigerator but it’s not available in its original form. (Looks like the website was redesigned and the chart lost it’s formatting.) Just for convenience, I put it back into an easy-to-read table below.

    • I don’t think brand matters. If you have a pattern in mind, look at the recommended weight, then go touch everything in the store! On the other hand, if you just really like a yarn you see, buy it then do a search for hats made with that weight! There are no rules!

  4. Thank Margaret! I rarely do top – down hats as I usually mess up with the sizing and this is very useful. I just saw that you have a link to this on one of your videos on youtube. This is very essential for crochet or even tunisian crochet in the round when making the flat circle.
