HAT SIZING CHART

So very often I find myself wondering exactly how big I should make a hat......and quite often others ask me the same question.  Well, the other day I came across a chart in one of my patterns that I thought would be helpful to share.  Mind you....the sizes are not exact....just approximate.  So if you want exact....measure the head you are stitching for!!!  LOL!!!  I hope this helps take some of the guess work out of your stitching   : )
