How to crochet a hat? It is much easier to crochet a hat then to knit one. Crochet hat starts from the top, (knit hat starts from the bottom, you need to decrease stitches at the top and you always have seams (4 or 6) at the top of the hat because of this). When crochet a hat, you work in rounds and add stitches in every row until you have the needed diameter (your head circumference divided by 3.14). After that you crochet without adding (increasing) stitches untill the end. And at the end you can add a visor for the Newsboy Cap, scallops, fringe, earflaps or you can leave is as it is and this would be a beanie. I explained it all very detailed in my free crochet hat tutorial:

How To Crochet a Hat - Free Basic Tutorial
any hat, any style, any size

All these hat styles and all the sizes from the preemie newborn to adult woman and man are in that free crochet hat tutorial!

Here is the table of approximate head measurements (if it is impossible to obtain the exact measurement you can use this table as a guidline):

Head Circumference Table.

To make a hat you'll need only one measurement: head circumference. Head circumference is a measurement of a child’s (adult's) head around its largest area -- it measures the distance from above the eyebrows and ears and around the back of the head.

Preemie baby: 11" -12" or 28 cm - 30.5 cm

Newborn baby: 13 " or 33 cm

Baby 2 weeks - 3 months: 14 " or 35.5 cm

Baby 3-6 months: 15" or 38 cm

Baby 6-9 months: 16" or 40.5 cm

Baby 9-12 months: 16 1/2 " or 42 cn

Baby 12-18 months: 17 " or 43.5 cm

Baby 18-24 months: 18 " or 46 cm
