I hook/ 5.50mm
sport weight (shown knit picks)
2T to 5T
Notes on sizing....This hat is stretchy and form fitting. Finished beanie from this pattern fits both my 2yr old and my 5yr old. If you switched to worsted yarn moved up to a J hook and add a few rows for length this could easily fit teens and adults. To make it fit toddlers row3 should be worked as dc, dc, 2dc so you will be starting with 20 instead of 30 dc for the body and shorten by a few rows. You could also increase stitches in row3 to make it bigger if you wanted to still work with I hook and sport yarn to make it bigger. And you could decrease further in row3 to make baby sizes.
