Blythe Doll Beret Pattern – Recipe

Blogged under crochet and knitting,dolls art/collecting by Tammy on Wednesday 29 June 2016 at 4:41 pm

This has not been test crocheted for accuracy or gauge. Therefore, I recommend you use this as a recipe and adapt as necessary, especially if you use thinner or thicker yarn than suggested, and check the fit on your doll’s head as you go (as hair thickness can also affect fit). I made this to fit a Blythe doll’s head. However, I have heard that American Girl (AG) dolls have about the same size head, so AG collectors may also find this helpful.

I used Morehouse Farm’s sport weight 2-ply in the “raspberry” colorway. Hook sizes and stitches terms are in US (not UK).

You will need the following tools and supplies:

Scissors

Stitch marker

Tapestry needle

G hook

F hook.

Your choice of sport weight yarn.

Use the G hook first and later switch to the F hook as indicated in the instructions below.

Start by using a sloppy slip knot to attach yarn to your hook See this link for instructions on the sloppy slip knot:

Note: I suggest working through the back loop of single crochet stitches. This will make noticeable lines around and allow you to count your rows as you work more easily. Use the stitch marker to mark the end of the row and move it as you go onto the next row.

Round 21: 2 sl sts

Cut yarn leaving at least a 6 inch tail, and use tapestry needle to weave in and trim off excess yarn.




If anyone finds time to test this out, I am open to reasonable suggestions, especially if there are any errors with my numbers. I ended up having to re-engineer this hat after I just did my usual creative experimenting with yarn. I ended up making 2 more berets before I could develop the pattern, and then I made one more following the pattern. Of course, it is easy to follow your own instructions, though.
