Hello Ladies... it's been a while since I have posted here...I guess I got depressed about wanting to make baby stuff and not having a baby for them...BUT... times have changed and I am now making baby things for my baby (god that is the first time I have typed that and it looks weird...lol). So I have what I think is an important question...
I want to make some hats but I just made the TLC Basic hat using all of the materials listed and my hat is really small...what is an average circumference of a baby's head... I can adjust the pattern if I can figure out how much bigger to make it... but I don't have a baby to measure...lol Can someone who recently had a baby or even remembers what the circumference of there baby's head was a birth, let me know the size so I can hopefully make some hats that won't be too tight for my LO.
Thanks in advance
Thomas' head was 14 inches at birth.
Use this chart if you don't have real person to measure. http://www.yarnstandards.com/headsize.html
That being said, my 4 y.o. head is nearly 20 inches, not 18 like the chart.
I think DD's head was between 14-14.5 inches at birth. Not sure what it is now.
My little guy's was 14.5 inches at birth
At 2 months it was 16.25
Tom's was 14.5" at birth. He was sort of big, but Sam was a peanut with a big head - I think hers was close to the same size despite the fact that she was 2 pounds lighter.
