Taking Measurements For Knit Hats

Beginner Hats and Mitts – Purl Soho

I came across this post on Churchmouse Yarns and Teas, and it’s definitely worth passing on to my readers. For the best fit, it’s important to take the proper measurements for all garments and accessories. Even though hats are easier to fit than sweaters, head measurements are often overlooked.

Bonus:  How to take measurements for the proper glove size: measure the circumference of the palm or the fullest part, just above the base of the thumb and below the knuckles. Use your dominant hand to measure – the right if you are right-handed; the left if you are left-handed. For length, measure from the tip of the middle finger to the base of the hand. Note: My hand measures 7 1/2 inches around the palm. Purchased gloves are typically sized by this number.
