What are you most proud of? That my first attempt at a hat in at least 25 years turned out the way it was supposed to, and that I was able to adjust the pattern myself to fit a MUCH smaller doll head. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you are crocheting with a nice even gauge. If you tend to crochet tight, you will probably need to use a larger hook. My gauge was perfect, and I tend to crochet a bit on the loose side. Read the instructions carefully, and have fun.
