Don’t the ends of this cute little scarf look like the wings of a butterfly ready to fly? They really do, but is our butterfly brave enough to fly away when it is so cold outside? Probably not... So it is sitting right here, on your doll’s shoulders, warm and snugly, waiting for the warm spring weather that will come, one day...
Winter Butterfly is a winter hat and scarf set for American Girl dolls and other 18 inch dolls that have head measurements of approximately 10-11 inches.
This set is a beautiful addition to your dolls' winter accessories : a warm and cozy , yet stylish and trendy beanie hat that can be worn as a slouchy beret, and a scarf with the ends resembling the wings of a butterfly.
The hat knitted in the two color slip stitch stitch. That stitch makes a real double sided fabric so your doll will be able to choose which side she likes the best to show off her new hat. The scarf is a really quick knit in garter stitch.
I have graded the pattern as advanced intermediate and intermediate. You should know the standard stitches like k2tog, yo, slip stitch. Because of the slip stitch the hat will be a bit of a "yarn eater".
