Delight your daughter this winter with a set of cat hats - one for her, one for her 18-inch doll. This will make a fantastic and unique holiday gift, or just lift her spirits in the bleak mid-winter with some hand-made love!

This pattern is my most recent cat hat publication, and it is the only one still available. It includes a doll-size hat size as well as a two baby hat sizes, a toddler size, and a child size. It also includes a video link to walk knitters through the crochet slip stitch trim. (I promise - I am not a crocheter and this is a very easy technique to learn!)
