The measurements used in industrial manufacturing are determined by a table in which size values go from 52 to 60 for adults, and from 45 to 56 for kids. The size corresponds to the measurement of the circumference of the head.

Using this software you can easily customize any project, if you prefer.

Just measure from one temple to the other, passing the centimetre tape from the nape of the neck to the forehead, a centimetre below where hairline begins.

Pattern, design notes
