Hello Kitty Hat

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.

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!
