Hat and Headband Size Chart {Free Printable}

Do you like making hats and headbands? I know I do!
I also know how frustrating it can be to wind up making the wrong sized hat.
Not fun.
If you are "winging it" or trying to re-size a pattern to the size you want, it will be helpful to know what the measurement of your finished product should be.
You start by knowing the approximate head size of your intended recipient. Can't measure your neighbor's cousin's granddaughter's head because she lives across the country? No worries, as long as you know about how old she is. This hat and headband size chart shows the approximate measurements for different ages, as well.

Keep in mind that yarn is stretchy. Typically, a hat or headband is made slightly smaller than the circumference (measurement around) of one's head.
