American Girl Doll Hat My First Loom Attempt



I mentioned in previous blogs that I have been experimenting with loom knitting and had made a few doll hats. This was in fact my first hat made with single yarn on the pink flower loom. I did not want to waste yarn if I ended up not being able to complete the project so I used a single stand instead of the double stand, most people suggest. I have seen other projects like this one, so I decided to keep it.

The dress is from a box of clothes my Mom knit and sewed for a niece on my husband's side. I have been slowly converting Mom into making toys and doll's clothes for the last few years. I have intrigued her by buying her books and patterns. This dress comes from Fun-to-Knit Doll Clothes. I love the lacy look and feel of the dress.

I realized I could in fact get the loom to work and made the next hat on the same loom thinking it would fit. However, the second hat will be used for a winter Hello Kitty to be made later. While I thought the loom fit on the doll's head, it appears the blue Knifty Knitter does in fact fit better. The third hat was the charm.
