What can I say? Sometimes ya just wanna change the hat size! It happens to all of us at one time or another. And that’s perfectly fine! 🙂 I have been crocheting for 5 years and designing for 4 years. In that time, you are bound to come up with your own size charts. As you may know, I specialized in preemie hats (premature babies), so I’ve got all of those sizes as well. BTW the 2lb size, I have been told is more for the parents, since the babies can’t usually wear anything being that small and fragile.
BTW you can find me on Instagram @AshleyDylanLife.
Anyways, I made lots of other size hats as well. So you shouldn’t have any problem finding the size you need in the chart below.
I remember trying to figure out all of these sizes. Paying attention at craft shows. Trying them on people around me. And using lots of others knowledge to figure it out. All in all, a lot of research was done to figure out all these sizes. You couldn’t believe the relief I had when I finally got it accomplished! And I didn’t want it to just go to waste, since I don’t design at the magnitude that I used to (one pattern a week, sometimes one daily pattern was just too much). I hope ya enjoy the chart below and find it useful! 🙂

And before I completely forget, I know sometimes you need some extra help with something. Well since I'm really busy, it can take me a day or 2 before I can get back to you. The thing is, I feel REALLY bad about that. So I created the Ultimate Knit and Crochet Facebook group. It's got some really awesome women that love to share their projects, help out and get inspired from your cool adventures. But if you'd rather wait, you can always DM me on Insta for a lil extra help. :) All good?
