Hat sizing

People have asked how do you make hats for babes with out having a baby around to size. Well there are standard sizes is that answer and I have found old doll heads (creepy to some) and measured them and labeled them as to what size baby they would be.  That way I can have a mannequin around to try hats on. If you do not have such things here are some standard measurements. Remember not everyone is exactly the same size at the same times these are just estimates.

Head Circumference 13" - 14 "
Hat Circumference = 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 -12 months - 3 years
Hat height = 8"
Head Circumference: 18" to 20 "

Child - 3 - 10 years
Hat height =8.5"
Head Circumference: 19" - 20 1/2"

Hat height 9-10"
Head Circumference: 20 1/2" - 22"

Adult Woman
Head Circumference: 21.5" - 22.5"

Adult Man
Head Circumference: 23" - 24"

I am 23" and my husband 24" I don't land in the woman's area and he is at the very top end of the mans area. Like I said not every one is the same.


  1. Thank you so much! This is a very handy resource!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this!! My daughter is nearly 7 now, so it's been a while since I've had a baby head around to get the sizing right.
