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.
