About sizes…
The hat circumference measures 22” (56 cm). A tight fit is recommended, as it expands 1” (2-3 cm) in use. You can resize the circumference with - / + 4 stitches. The height measures 18” (46 cm), from ear to ear, over the head. The height can also be changed and it is described in the pattern.
The gloves are only in one size and it’s not so easy to change, but if you want a different size, you can choose thinner / thicker yarn and needles.
