At first it didn’t seem like the neck band was long enough to go under her chin with comfort, but after I added an additional inch it became clear that I didn’t need to. I might just move the button further back on the hat rather than ripping the band out a bit. I could leave the first button to use as she gets bigger.
This is the 6 month size. It comes in 3 or 6 months, but since she’s in the 75th percentile for height, weight, and head size, I figured I should size up a bit for the winter. I went down two needle sizes to get gauge. This hat could easily be made for an older child by using a heavier yarn and larger needle with the same numbers. It’s a piece of cake.
