This pattern works up easy if you already know the front and back post stitches! I memorized it after making 2 hats. I found after making the first one that even though my gauge was correct, the bottom ribbed hat brim was small, and I could barely get it on the doll's head. I made a second one and used one hook size up for the brim, and it worked perfectly, so if you want the hat to actually go on the doll I find it best to use one hook size up for the brim.
