How do you Crochet a Hat for An Amigurumi Doll?

The hat we are making today is the one pictured with the pom-pom. The hat with the bow is an extra bonus pattern that is exclusive to the Crochet Along Bundle. This crochet doll hat pattern is worked from the top-down, in a continuous spiral. I designed the hat this way so that you can try the hat on your doll as you work. This can help you to see if your hat is too tight/too loose so you can make adjustments as necessary before you get too far into the hat.

We’ll be using a few basic crochet stitches to make our amigurumi doll hat: Single Crochet (including increasing and decreasing SC), Double Crochet as well as Front Post and Back Post Double Crochets. I have video and photo tutorials for these stitches on my blog or you can watch the step-by-step tutorial for this pattern which will show you how to do them as well.

Will This Doll Hat Fit Other Dolls or Toys?

This pattern is designed to fit my Advent Amy doll but it will fit some of my other free doll patterns as well: My Dolly Molly, and My Pal Pascal. You’d have to try this hat on another toy to see if it would fit that toy or not. Adjusting your gauge, using a different yarn/hook combination or adding/subtracting rounds to the pattern could help it fit another toy. Because the hat has been designed from the top-down, you’ll be able to try it on as you go to customize your fit.

Skill Level:

  • Easy

Terminology:

  • U.S. Terminology

Supplies:

Abbreviations:


Special Techniques and Stitches:

  • Invisible Finish/Join: FO leaving a long tail. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle.  Place the tapestry needle through the top of the 2nd ST from front to back and pull through.  Place tip of needle into top of the last ST of the round, under the back loop of the stitch, and pull through to the back of the work.  Weave in the end. Learn how to do this with my invisible finish/join tutorial.

Finished Size:

  • Clothing to fit Advent Amy Doll which is approximately 10.5” tall.


Gauge:

  • Clothing: 4 sts across x 6 rows = 1” square.

  • Doll: Rounds 1 – 4 of the Leg = 1.5” across at widest point.

 

Notes:

  • Gauge is important for ensuring that all of the parts of your doll fit appropriately.  If you don’t plan to match gauge, ensure that you maintain a consistent tension throughout your project. 

  • Most of the pieces are worked back and forth in turned rows, unless noted.  Read instructions for each piece carefully before starting to crochet.

  • For pieces worked in continuous rounds, a stitch marker is used to marker the first ST of the round and is moved up in each consecutive round.

  • CH 2 in Round 6 of the body of the bear counts as a ST.

  • You may need to fold down the ears of the bear for it to fit into the advent box.
