Hat Size Reference Chart

I seem to be obsessed with hats and headbands this year – maybe because  we already had snow on the ground when I first posted this.                                                                                                                                              There are so many charts on-line with different information, so I found myself spending way too much time searching for the information I needed every time I designed a new hat.  Last month I finally took the time to go through all my patterns, compare them with on-line charts and come up with a simple, yet comprehensive chart.  Now I can find what I need in one chart!

Maybe you will find this handy as well,   After a winter of crocheting several hats, I have updated my chart, changing the depth from fitted beanie to a measurement from the top of the crown to the bottom of the ear.
