As the weather gets colder, your American Girl Doll needs a pretty winter hat to keep her head warm! I came up with this simple free American Girl crochet pattern when I was finishing up a Christmas gift for my youngest daughter. We got her a doll-sized sled and I made a fleece jacket, mittens, and this crocheted hat to go along with it.
Made from mostly single crochet, this is a good project for beginning crocheters. Because the hats work up so quickly, you can make them in several colors to coordinate with your doll’s outfits. With Christmas quickly approaching, these hats would make great stocking stuffers!

The hat is worked in a round. Do not join rounds unless noted. Use a safety pin or stitch marker to keep your place.
