Is there a gauge for this pattern and your other patters? I was always taught that the gauge will insure the proper size as everyone knits to a different size.

Hi, you are right. But when I knit headbands I do not usually measure gauge. For this yarn it is about 20 sts (4 in) in stockinette or 28 sts in Broadway pattern.

I would like to make this for my daughter, how do I make it smaller?

I would not make it narrower, because it will look differently. If you want a smaller circumference, just knit until desired length.
