Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round on double pointed needles
  • Increasing
  • Decreasing

Pattern Description:

Rosamund is a sweetly feminine beret done in a highly textured stitch pattern that resembles little flowers, and is topped with a plump pom pom. It's designed to fit 18" dolls with a head circumference of approximately 12 1/4", like American Girl. It's worked in the round on double pointed needles, and requires minimal finishing. It would go with jeans and a casual top just as well it is does with a dress.

The stitch pattern used for the hat is unusual, but not hard. Just sit down with your needles in hand (it makes a lot more sense if you figure it out while working it on the needles, than trying to abstractly imagine it in your head) when you have some peace and quite without distractions. You'll quickly get the hang of it, and hopefully find it as much fun to work as I did! =)

Gauge:

- 30 sts & 56 rounds = 4" in garter stitch in the round on size 2 needles

- In the Flowers Stitch Pattern used for the body of the hat, each "flower" is 4 sts wide.
18 sts (or 4 1/2 flowers) = 2" on size 2 needles in the round.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • One Size - to fit 18" dolls with a head circumference of approx. 12 1/4"

Materials:

  • Set of size US 2 (3.00mm) double pointed needles (DPNs) (or size required to obtain gauge)
  • 135 yards of fingering weight yarn

You Will Also Need:

  • Darning needle for weaving in ends
