The reverse stockinette background of this hat makes
it very stretchy. It will stretch between 2 and 4 inches,
possibly more. The first two sizes are actual the same
circumference, but the larger size is taller. As for the
adult size. I have a 23 inch head and my daughter
(model pictured) and the adult size fits both of us. The
child size is worn by my son who has a 20 inch head.
So, yes, it has a lot of stretch!
