Size and Measuring Guide

This page will help you select the right sized products for you and your family. I've included size charts as well as a guide on how to accurately measure for knitted hats, headbands and baby booties. Sizes vary from one person to another, particularly with babies and children, so it is important to measure and order the correct size rather than ordering simply by age. Note: Due to the hand crafted nature of my items, all sizes are approximate.

Knitted Hat Sizing and Headband Measuring Guide

There's a wide selection of hat and headband styles at Snug; some designed to be loose and slouchy and some close fitting. Regardless of the style, my sizes are based on this chart. 

You will need a tape measure to obtain an accurate measurement of head circumference. If you are purchasing for yourself it is useful to get someone to help with this.

Wrap the tape measure all the way around the widest part of your head - above your forehead, just above your ears, around the back of the head and back to the front. It's important to measure over your hair to get an accurate measurement. Ensure that the tape measure is not too loose or tight - it should be snug, and not uncomfortable.

Knitted Baby Booties Sizing and Measuring Guide

Snug Creations' booties come in different sizes for different stages of your baby's development and all have quite a lot of stretch. Some styles are sized 0-3 months/3-6 months and others 0-6 months/6-12 months/12-24 months.

Measuring baby's feet is a bit more of a wriggly business! There's a couple of ways that I recommend to do this. One way is to take either a solid ruler or a tape measure and when baby is lying down, measure from big toe to the back of the heel (you might want to wait for baby to have a nap to sneak this in!). Another way, if you have an extra pair of hands to help, is to stand baby up on a sheet of paper and draw a pencil line at the tip of the big toe and another at the back of the heel and then measure the distance between the two.
