Free Project: Jesse Doll Bear Hat from Just Like Me Knits
We have many new moms here at the CrafterNews offices, and we’re always looking for quick, easy, and cute knitting patterns. One of our favorite things to knit for little ones are animal hats, which are all the rage for kids these days. Since kids love to match their dolls, of course they will want a doll-sized animal hat for their favorite plush friend. That’s why we’re thrilled that Brandy Fortune, author of the upcoming book Just Like Me Knits and editor of the online magazine Petite Purls, has shared the Jesse Doll Bear Hat pattern with us!
Just Like Me Knits is an adorable collection of knit patterns for everyday and dress-up clothes as well as accessories, all sized for young children and their dolls. These simple, matching outfits are just right for outdoor adventures, a child’s fancy tea party, and everything in between.
Brandy is a busy mom to two young girls, so she knows that patterns have to be pragmatic, but still be modern and cozy. We love her style, and could not agree more with Susan B. Anderson, who says in her foreword for Just Like Me Knits, “[Brandy’s] designs always hit the mark for beautiful simplicity, practicality, and an uncanny understanding of how knitters want to knit, especially when it comes to knitting for children.”
This project is the perfect gift for any child’s favorite cuddly buddy, and it is a great way to make use of your yarn stash. Also be sure to check out the matching kid’s hat in Just Like Me Knits.
