Get the proper head measurement for the mens crochet hat pattern free

For an accurate head measure, you need the full head circumference. Use a tape measure around the forehead, keeping it tight. Then divide that number by 3.14 and round up or down to the nearest quarter to get a good crown measurement.  For example, if the head measures 21, here is the math:

21 divided by 3.14 = 6.68 rounded to 7

For the length, measure from the center of the head down to the bottom of the ear.  Consider what your hat brim will look like and make the necessary adjustments.  

Crocheted hats are stretchy and have some give which allows for less importance on precise measurements.  

Here is the Crochet Hat Pattern measurement chart.

Here is a free printable ruler, if you need one.
