That depends on your gauge and the type of yarn you use. Using a stretchy yarn will yield a hat that is basically one size fits all. If you use a less elastic yarn, you may need to add or subtract a repeat of the stitches in parentheses to obtain the correct size (although the lace pattern will add some elasticity even if your yarn is not stretchy).

If using a not-so-elastic yarn, I suggest making a swatch in pattern before you start knitting to find your gauge, then doing some simple math:

number of stitches per inch x head circumpherence in inches = number of stitches to cast on.

You will need to round the number you get to the nearest multiple of five plus two to fit the pattern.

Bet you weren't expecting to have to do math today, were you?
