Dolls Christmas party :3 + Free Blythe Cracker hat pattern!

Hello everyone!

It has been a very fun day today :) Candy and Catherine had a special Pre-Christmas party today with thier newest friend Penny (A tangkou doll I bought on Ebay :) They chatted lots and drunk quite alot of orange juice too! For this special occasion I made them all some Christmas cracker/party hats, they liked them alot. Hehehe here is a shot I got of them all in deep discussion about how Candy keeps her hair so pink, lol!:

I thought I would give away the hat Pattern free just in case there are any other Blythes anywhere in need of party hats :0D

Here it is....

You will need:
  • A pair of 3.25mm needles
  • DK yarn in any colour you want (the better quality/slightly thicker the better as this stretches less when ironing flat)
  • A darning needle
  • A pair of scissors
  • And an iron (or you can block your piece)
Party hat pattern:
(Avoid knitting too loosely as this could lead to hat being too big)

Cast on 66 sts
Row 1-7: Stst 7 rows beginning with a K row
Row 8: In P, cast off 1 st at each end and work purl over rest of sts (64 sts)
*Row 9: K8, then working on these sts only (leaving rest of sts on needle) work first point:
(P across on all even rows)
Row 11: K2tog, K4, K2tog (6 sts)
Row 13: K2tog, K2, K2tog (4 sts)
Row 15: K2tog twice (2 sts)
Row 17: K2tog (1st)
Then fasten off for first point*

Rejoin yarn and work from * to * to work next point and then following remaining 6 points (8 points in total)

Making up:

Darn in all loose ends leaving just cast on thread for sewing up hat later. Then carefully iron hat piece to flatten slightly, avoid ironing the piece heavily as this will flatten it too much causing the hat to be too large. Alternatively you can block the piece to flatten, this takes longer but it you do not stretch piece too much this does reduce chance of hat being too big. (elastic can be sewn in to hat if this does happen anyway :) Then finally mattress stitch two end edges of crown together. You can then add any decorations you want :0)

All done!

I hope you like the pattern and I hope it enhances some other Blythe/doll parties! :0P

See you all very soon,

It's not long till Christmas now, I can't wait! 

Bye!! xxx
