Oh, I did it and is it ever cute cute cute! I made Oslofia's HK hat in needles and yarn to fit an American Girl Doll! Whee is it ever cute on that doll. I have forgotten how much fun it is to make doll clothes--I used to have a blast sewing clothes for my DD's Kirsten American Girl 18" doll. It was such fun to knit this.
and now (drumroll, please).................
First is a grainy photo w/o flash.
That's a little better.
Hello Kitty doll's hat posing on a skein of Socks That Rock.
I must find DD's American Girl doll for a proper photo shoot.
(If I can't find it by next week, my LYS owner has one I can use at Friday Night knitting, so I'll have a pic of the hat on the doll within a week.)
Anyway this was made for the Hello Kitty Winter KAL, which I joined through Ravelry. I love HK!!!!!!!
My mods: I used fine yarn and needles in size 1 to knit this (instructions called for DK or worsted). And I made different ears by CO 18 sts, and doing garter stitch, with 2 dec every other row until there were only two st, then K2 tog and thread yarn through. I also embroidered the features with other yarns, instead of using felt. (I did adjust the hat slightly, by cutting out 4-5 rows overall.)
Now on to the next HK project!
