Crocheted American Girl Doll Hats

I have recently started to play with crocheted crafts again.  Until this year, the only crochet stitches I had ever done are a chain, single crochet and double crochet.

Check out some of my other crocheted projects by clicking HERE.

I have made several blankets over the years, but I think that the reason that I stayed away from other crochet projects is that my stitches always seemed to be larger or smaller than what was needed for the project I was working on . . . getting the stitch size correct is called the gauge.  This is something I am working on.

I found a pattern for a doll hat HERE and I decided to give it a try.  Knowing that my gauge is usually off, I wanted to make a test hat to see if it would even end up fitting a standard 18″ doll (American Girl Doll) so I used some rainbow yarn I had left over from another project.  I used a G hook, because that was the closest I had to the size hook the pattern recommends.

I think the fit turned out pretty good!

So once I knew it would fit, I made it again in pink.  This time I decided to have a little fun and make a big rose and add that to the hat.  I cannot remember where I found the rose pattern.

Now that I know I have a good size hat, I want to make more of them for my niece’s American Girl Doll.  Each hat took me less than an hour to make.
