Pick out any yarn, any pattern and work up a child sized hat (or two or three hundred). If you're not sure what to use, try this pattern with several style variations, and any worsted weight wool (washable is best - these are going to kids). As Melissa says, "These kids are not picky. They always love all of the hats. Go nuts!"
Sizes needed are children's size small through extra large. The children range from age 4 through teenager. Just be sure to make the hat 1 1/2” smaller than these dimensions for a nice snug fit:
- Child (3 - 10 years) Hat height =8.5” Head Circumference: 19” - 20 1/2”
- Pre-teens and Teens Hat height 9-10” Head Circumference: 20 1/2” - 22”
- Adult Woman Head Hat height = 11” Head Circumference: 21.5” - 22.5”
- Adult Man Hat height = 11”-11.5” Head Circumference: 23” - 24
