I was crocheting away at my orders last night when my sweet 3 year old Calleigh brought me her Bitty Baby that Oma Got her for christmas, and asked me kindly to make her a pink hat with curls. I couldn't resist the fun idea and I knew it would work up in a matter of minutes. (15- 20 to be exact!)
So here is a super quick project that you can make for your daughters bitty baby doll (American Girl) or it also works as a Preemie hat for about a 4-5lb baby.
