    I love the hat wished she would have posted the instructions on how to do it and how much yarn.

    Zontee says: Hi Lucy, please add your comments on the posts to which they relate. In the meantime, check out our pattern for Ed’s Hat, which is a basic pattern, very similar to Jessica’s design. Hope that helps.

    Hi, Lucy. I used less than a skein of Wool-Ease Chunky in Tinsel White. My hat is very similar to the pattern Zontee provided, but I made my trim thinner to make it more feminine.

    Anyone have a sweater pattern (or just measurements is ok) for an American Girl Doll? I have Vanna’s Choice yarn left over and would like to make a matching sweater for a young girl!!

    • Zontee

      Hi Helen, just search “18 inch doll knitting pattern” on Google (or your preferred search engine) and you should be able to find quite a few patterns!

      • GAMMY Helen

        Thank you for your quick answer for the pattern requested. I have already made the American Girl Cardigan or Pullover.(Barbara Breiter’s).I did have a correction to make ’cause I made the pullover and found 5 sts. had to be increased on the front to attain the 31 sts. on back. (after BO 11 sts. for the sleeves, I had only 26 sts.) It was an easy adjustment, but thought worth mentioning for another gammy.
        Thanks again for the fast answer. Helen
