Laurie writes,

"I just finished a Men's Winter Hat using your pattern. What a wonderful pattern. I made the hat for my boss and he loved it. He wants me to make one for his 3- year- old son. Do you have this pattern in children's? If not, can you recommend dimensions?

Note: Laurie is referring to this men's winter hat, pictured above.

My response:

Hi Laurie,

Thanks for getting in touch! I really appreciate your interest in my patterns.

I am sooo glad you liked the pattern, and it's wonderful that your boss loved his hat. That's fantastic!

I have not yet developed the pattern for child sizes but that's a great idea. I wouldn't recommend waiting for me to get around to it though...:)

There are a couple of resources I recommend if you want to just downsize the pattern a bit.

Erica Jackofsky, former contributing writer at About.com, has a size chart here:

Hat Size Chart

and it has some helpful info about ease when designing hats for little ones.

The Craft Yarn Council has a head circumference chart here:

Hope that helps, but if all else fails you could ask your boss for the child's head measurements to be on the safe side.

Thanks again for getting in touch!
