18-inch-doll-hat-scarfI’ve tried many of the free patterns on the internet for doll hats that fit American Girls dolls. They always left something to be desired for me. Either they were really boring, or they fell off every 5 seconds. So I developed my own pattern that is super cute and actually stays on!

This Flowered Cloche and Scarf for 18-inch dolls can be made with acrylic or cotton yarn. It has an accent color band and flower, and a lightly fluted edge. Perfect for beginners and kids, it’s a quick and easy project.

This hat pattern is no longer free, but it’s only $1.99! (Click for instant download on ETSY: Flowered Cloche Hat for 18-inch Doll) You MAY sell your finished products, as long as you give credit and link back to this pattern.

Pictured below are some hats I’ve made, and my super cute children! Let me know if you make the hat and feel free to post a link to your finished hat in the comments.

Make a matching child hat by using this basic beanie pattern and adding a scalloped edge and a flower.
