Project

Headwarmers for Me and My Doll!

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Improvisational What are you most proud of? I think young ladies and their 18" or 15" dolls (such as American Girl) will love wearing these sets on crisp, cool days to keep their heads warm. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is an easy project for a beginning knitter who already knows the basics, namely how to knit and purl and is ready to learn increases and decreases and how to knit an I-cord. Don't worry too much about the gauge for this project. The little headwarmers are very stretchy (my two models are 3 and 5.5 years old). The placement of the button(s) on the back will allow for adjusting the length.

What you will need

  • Baby sportweight yarn (#3 light weight)

  • 5/8 inch button
  • 7/8 inch button
