Reducing Width/circumference for stretch fabrics

After losing my ear warmers running yesterday I decided I'd whip up some new ones using the Wild Things pattern. I notice there's no "stretch" setting in Wild Things. I can of course reduce the circumference to use it with stretch fabric, but does anyone have a standard chart they use of how much to reduce width/circumference based on the stretch percentage of the fabric being used?

You can download our stretch gauge from the link below.  You should be able to use the percentages to calculate the amount to reduce the circumference.
