  4. Just found your blog while looking for preemie hat patterns. You have some GREAT work! I would like to share with you something I found some time back for sizing. If you know the circumference of the head, divide that by pi (3.14) and that number will be the inches of increasing rows from magic ring to edge of your work. From there you stop increasing and start the length of the hat. You can reverse that and measure from the magic ring to edge and multiply by pi (3.14) and this will tell you the circumference the hat will be at that point.
