This is a brimmed child hat I made from a pattern found on Ravlery - currently my favorite web site. The pattern is Big Girl Bonnet by Kay Rae. I made some slight changes in coloring and made a bow instead of the flower just to freshen things up a little but the pattern remains the same.
I'm posting the pattern here just in case you don't have a Ravelry account, but I sincerely recommend you create one and go crazy with their patterns :-)

A simple summer dress, very easy to make.
The top is made with single stitches, and the skirt part with double stitches in ripple pattern. The dress is made in one piece and doesn't need to be buttoned in the back. This is very convenient if kids are dressing Barbie in it, since they usually have issues with buttons :-)
It is actually quite a simple pattern: the top is made with single stitches, and the skirt with shell stitches all around.
Hook size needed: 3,5mm/E hook
The white jacket was made by my sister.
