1Use a gauge of 14-1/2 sts half double crochet (4 inch) to crochet a hat that measures 14 (16, 17, 18, 19, 20) inch in circumference to fit approximately 6-12 months (1-2 year(s), 2-5 years, 5-7 years, 7-12 years, Adult Small). Remember to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook.

When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To be sure of a good fit, measure head circumference before beginning.
