How Much Yarn is Needed For a Hat Project?

I tend to find yarn I like and buy it before I have a project in mind. Consequently I have tons of yarn in varying weights, lengths and colors.

Once I decide to make something I use a yarn calculator like the one at the Jimmy Bean yarn shop site (link below) to figure out approximately how much yarn I will need.

I think I am a loose knitter, and usually I would need a bit more. Also if my measurements change to a larger size, I will need more. It’s better to have too much than not enough to finish a pattern.
