  1. What a very fashionable little doll with such a pretty little girl!

  2. I made the child one today for a girl with leukemia. I added a border. I slip stitched to the end of the row. Then I sc, dc, sc in one stitch and then sc in the next stitch. I repeated this to the end. Try this on your next hat. It is cute. :) Thanks for the great pattern.

  3. That sounds like fun! I will have to try that. I made one yesterday for a little girl in the hospital too..maybe I should make a second one with the border :)

  4. Thank you for this lovely hut. I am beginner and would really like to ask you to explain me something, because I am stuck already with Olivias butterfly hut. How should I do this:
    Rnd 4) ch2, *2dc in first st, dc in next 2dc, repeat from * around, join.
    Especially what does this mean: in rnd 4) dc in next 2dc and in rnd 5) dc in next 3dc ?
    I would love to do it for my daughter for St. Nicholas.

  5. I just wanted to thank you for the lovely hat pattern. I have made it for my little granddaughter but made it a little small, so I added a little to make it fit her. I am about to crochet another one and make it a little larger this time so that I can just make it exactly as you have. You can see the hat on
    Thanks again.

  6. Ooooooo! Thanks so much. Love the matching Butterfly Hats! Now I know what one granddaughter will get for Xmas!

  7. Hello, I just LOVE this pattern, along with the butterfly fingerless gloves.
    I have a question for this hat!!!
    How do I make it bigger, for a child the age of 9 months to 12 months? Thanks, if anyone can reply

  8. i just found this beautiful pattern through pinterest, thank you sooo much!

  9. I'm so glad it's being used :)

  10. Wow! Love this. Is there a pattern for the little shrug or sweater the doll is wearing as well? The hat came together so quick and easy, Can't wait to make they big hat for my daughter to match her doll.
