Head Sizes

If any of you are like me, you have some great ideas of making hat patterns but the question is, how big around is the "normal" head. At Martha Stewart's site, she has a chart that I am borrowing to put here. I hope she doesn't get mad at me since I'm giving her credit and a link back to her site. Anyway, here's the info:

Average Head-Size Chart
Newborn (6 Months and Younger)
Circumference: 14 to 17 inches
Crown: 8 to 10 inches
Infant (6 to 12 Months)Circumference: 16 to 19 inches
Crown: 11 to 12 inches
Child (1 to 3 Years)Circumference: 18 to 20 inches
