TUTORIAL: American Girl Crochet Hat



Lately, I have been having so much fun making my girls clothes for their dolls.  My latest project was these cute crochet hats.  They fit nice and tight, and I love the way they look on the dolls.  I am sharing the pattern with you today so that you can make a few for your dolls too!

The yarn I used for this hat I purchased online from Fabric.com.  It is called Cotton Classic Yarn.  They have changed their website up a bit and I haven't been able to find it recently, so I am not sure if they are still selling it.  This is my favorite yarn for crocheting Doll hats, so I hope I can find some more in the future. 

Materials Needed:
DK weight yarn (#3)
Crochet hook size: F  5/3.74 MM

Notes:
-Gauge: 4 sts and 5 rows = 1" (2.5 cm) The gauge is for sc rows.  If your gauge is not right, go up or down a size crochet hook in order to get the right gauge.

Instructions:
Make a magic loop, ch 1;

Rnd 1: 12 hdc in the ring, join with a sl st to the first hdc, ch 1 (12 hdc)

Rnd 2: 2 hdc in each st around, join with a sl st, ch 1 (24 hdc)

Rnd 3: (hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in next st) around, join with a sl st, ch 1 (32 hdc)

Rnd 4: (hdc in the next 3 sts, 2 hdc in next st) around, join with a sl st, ch 1 (40 hdc)

Rnd 5: ch 3 (counts as the first dc), dc in the same st you just joined in, ch 1, 2 dc in the same st, skip the next 3 sts, {(2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in the next st, skip the next 3 sts} repeat from {to} 8 more times, join with a sl st to the first dc (40 dc, 10 ch-1 spaces)

Rnd 6-8: sl st in the next dc, sl st into the next ch-1 space, ch 3, (counts as the first dc), dc in the same ch-1 space, ch 1, 2 dc in the same ch-1 space, skip the next 4 dc, {(2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in the next ch-1 space, skip the next 4 dc} repeat from {to} 8 more times, join with a sl st to the first dc (40 dc, 10 ch-1 spaces)

Rnd 9: ch 1 (does not count as the first sc), sc in the same st as you just joined in, sc in the next st, skip the next ch-1 space, sc in the next 2 sts (sc in the next 2 sts, skip the next ch-1 space, sc in the next 2 sts) repeat around, join with a sl st to the first sc (40 sc)

Work in the BLO for the last 3 rnds.

Rnd 10-12: sc in each st around, join with a sl st (40 sc)

Fasten off, weave in your loose end and you are finished!

  1. I got confused at row 5. It says "in the next ch1 space" but we didn't make any ch1 spaces in the previous row, right? I am a beginner so it could just be my lack of experience. Thank you!

TUTORIAL: Doll Diaper plus Pattern!

This weekend I made diapers for my little girl's doll.  I probably made more than she needs, but it was so much fun to watch her face light up as I got each one of them finished! 
I designed the pattern to fit her Bitty Baby Doll.  But, I also realize that some of you may have a different size doll....  So, I made the waistband adjustable.  It may not fit all of your dolls and stuffed animals, but this will make it more likely to.


I wanted it to be a nice and tight fit so that we could fit the doll's pants over the diaper, and it worked out well!

Today I am excited to share the tutorial with you.  Here is what you will need: 1/4 yard or a fat quarter of cotton fabric.  Coordinating thread 1/2" sew in Velcro.  I have tried the stick on kind, and didn't like it.  It eventually comes off.  If you try to sew it on, it will gum up your needle and the needle will have to be replaced.  I highly recommend the sew in kind that is not sticky. Before starting, you will need …

Crocodile Stitch: work 6 dc around the post of the next dc, ch 3, sl st in the 3rd ch from the hook, work 6 dc around the post of the next st (crocodile stitch made)

Notes:

The gauge doesn't matter so much for this pattern because you aren't making an article of clothing that needs to fit someone.  I do tend to crochet very tight (tighter than normal) when I am making amigurumi so that the stuffing doesn't show through.  But, if you want your t…
