Notes

I loved my Phoebe Mouse so much that I decide she needed an Amanda Hat to keep her warm.

The hat should fit her head very well, though, you will have to fold her ears forward before placing the hat on her head. (My Phoebe’s head had a 9” circumference before adding the ears.)

Since each Phoebe’s head may be slightly larger or smaller in size, you should knit a gauge swatch to see if you want to use a larger or smaller needle size so it will fit your doll perfectly :D
