I have designed a hat pattern for Jenny and Lexie, my Heather Maciak dolls. These knitted hats are made to go with the sweater pattern I designed for the dolls after meeting Heather in Vancouver during November 2015. They can also fit Heather's 8.5 inch Emily and Annie dolls.
The hats modeled in these photos, taken just after Christmas 2016, were knitted specially for Heather and posted to her in February 2017.

Heather's Lexie and Jenny rushed out into the freezing weather, cosily dressed in their sweaters, hats and mittens. The following photos were sent to me by Heather Maciak.

The hat pattern is now available as a free download on Ravelry (you need a Ravelry account to access it) - as with the sweater pattern I am sharing this pattern openly using a Creative Commons Attribution Sharealike Non-commercial licence - you are welcome to knit this for your 8 inch dolls but may not sell the pattern or sell your knitting from the pattern unless you contact me for permission. I reserve the right to make the hat to sell.
I now plan to knit hats to match the sweaters which I made for my own Jenny and Lexie, in purple and denim blue.
