Okay, I finally made it and is it ever cute cute cute! I made Oslofia's HK hat in tiny 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 American Girls 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 hat posing on a skein of Socks That Rock yarn.
I must find DD's American Girl doll for a proper photo shoot.
(I'll have a pic of the hat on the doll soon.)
I love HK!!!!!!!
My mods: I used Dalegarn Baby Ull fine yarn with needles in U.S. size 1 to knit this (instead of 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! Thanks to Oslofia for the cute patterns :)
