Hat Sizing

There are some variations to the size of a hat. The loom, the stretch of the yarn, and the stitch used all influence the correct size. The following sizes work for most hats. The best way for beginners to judge correct loom size is to get started knitting a hat. Advanced loom knitters can achieve the gauge called for in the pattern to perfectly size the hat.

24 peg loom (Knifty Knitter blue)         preemie or doll            9-14 inches
31 peg loom (Knifty Knitter red)          infant or baby              14-18 inches
36 peg loom (Knifty Knitter green)       child or small woman   18-20 inches
41 peg loom (Knifty Knitter yellow)      adult                            20-24 inches
hat loom (Knifty Knitter purple)            adult
