since a hat should stretch a bit over the head to stay snug, shouldn't the hat circumference be smaller than the head circumference and if so by how much?

Hat circumference
by: Ratchadawan


I like to make my hat about 1 inch smaller than my head circumference if I want a snuggling hat. Most of the time I like my hat to be the same size as my head because I can't wear a tight hat very long. It makes my head hurts.

Here is a link to standard head circumference chart for knitting hat if you want to see it just for fun.


Have fun knitting!
