You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami cap. Make sure the paper cap you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is 20cm x 20cm square one.

From 20cm x 20cm paper, we get a diameter of 6cm. Then, from the formula


20cm : 6cm = The paper dimension : diameter of your head,


you will get


paper dimension, x = diameter of you head * 20 / 6.


For an example, if the diameter of your head is 16cm, then from


x = 16 cm * 20 / 6 = 53.3 cm.


Therefore, you will need 53.3cm x 53.3cm square paper to make a cap.
