I'm trying to knit a hat for a 1-year-old cousin, and am just making up a pattern.  (Shhh, it's a surprise.)

However, I know babies' heads are not all that small, but this hat doesn't look like it will fit?  Does anyone know of an online source with average body measurements for kids?  Or if you have made a hat for a one year old, what was the circumference?

Why can't puffins eat pancakes instead?

I don't know of a site which lists standard measurements, but many knitting books have baby hat patterns. You could check the sizing for some idea of what to do with your pattern.
When I made a hat for my 1yr old nephew, it was about 18in in circumference. He's fairly small, so you might try for 19 or 20in.
Hope this helps! Smiley

I had the same trouble, and the books I had didn't have any kind of standard size - they were all over the board. I used the following page:

http://www.yarnstandards.com/sizing.html

and specifically for heads:
http://www.yarnstandards.com/headsize.html

Of course, my fat head is significantly bigger than the standard woman's (or man's for that matter) Tongue but it's a great resource for getting started, or for making surprise gifts.
