First, a few essentials:

  • SC Gauge with 5 mm hook: 14 stitches and 16 rows = 4″ (10 cm). Be sure to check your gauge on this pattern.
  • The beginning chain of each row does not count as a stitch.
  • Each row is started in the same stitch as your beginning chain.
  • Not all heads conform to sizing by age; please measure for a more accurate fit.

 Abbreviations: 

  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet

Sizing:

  • Toddler and small child (2 to 5 years) = 18″ – 19″ head circumference
  • Child (5 to 10 years) = 19″ – 20″ head circumference
  • Teen/small adult = 21″ – 22″ head circumference
  • Medium adult = 22″ – 23″ head circumference
  • Large adult = 23″ – 24″ head circumference
