Blythe Cupcake Hat – Knitting Pattern

A couple of months ago I decided that I NEEDED to knit a blythe cupcake hat for a swap. Luckily there are some lovely crochet patterns available for cupcake hats for Blythe. Unluckily I can’t crochet to save my life. The only solution? Invent a pattern. So I did. Here it is. I hope you enjoy.

Sew up the seams. From the inside of the hat whip stitch the picot edge in place at the point where the colours change. Decorate the icing section using thread or beads as preferred. Block the piece while wet.

      Hi Sharon

      The hat is sized specifically to fit a Blythe dolls head. A quick google search says a blythe head = 10.5″ in circumference approx. It is sized to be slightly wider to accommodate her hair. Hope that helps.
