Knitted Tweedy Hat for Blythe Dolls – free pattern

This beautifully textured, tweedy hat for Blythe dolls is knit flat and embellished with a big fluffy pompom. You can use a tweedy yarn like I have or showcase the textured stitch pattern with a solid colour yarn.

Materials you’ll need

  • One x 50g ball Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed Aran* (85% wool, 15% angora) in colour of your choice (1 ball should be enough for two hats)
  • One pair of 3mm (US 2.5) knitting needles
  • One pair of 5mm (US 8) knitting needles OR SIZE TO OBTAIN GAUGE
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
  • Cardboard for pom poms (or pom pom maker) – my pompom has 1.4” (3.5cm) diameter

*The Donegal Luxury Tweed Aran weight yarn isn’t published on the Debbie Bliss website anymore but you may be able to purchase at LoveCrafts. According to, there are quite a few alternative tweedy yarns with similar gauge and tweedy texture.  Debbie Bliss does still offer a 4ply/fingering weight version on their website – you could also try by knitting with two strands of yarn (I haven’t tested this).


18 sts and 24 rows = 4” (10cm) using 5mm (US 8) needles. Use this gauge to obtain correct size. If your gauge differs, consider using smaller or larger needles or increasing or decreasing the number of stitches initially cast on.

Skill Level



The hat is knit flat in one piece with a back seam. You could adapt the hat to be knit in the round by replacing the purl stitches in the Daisy Stitch Pattern with knit stitches, and purl the knit stitches in rows 9 and 11, etc.

Knitted Tweedy Hat for Blythe Dolls – Instructions

Daisy Stitch Pattern (DS): p3 tog, leave sts on LH needle, wind yarn around RH needle over top and back to front again, then p the same 3 sts together and let fall from needle. (Daisy Stitch is worked on a multiple of 4 sts + 1)

Cast on 50 sts with 3mm (US 2.5) needles. I use the Cable Cast On Method, see my video demonstration here

Row 1 (RS): k2, *p2, k2; rep from * to end

Row 2: p2, *k2, p2; rep from * to end

Repeat rows 1 and 2 twice.

Row 7: k3, *m1, k2; rep from * to last st, k1 (73 sts). Knit this row loosely.

Change to 5mm (US 8) needles.

Row 8: knit to end

Row 9: k1, *work daisy stitch (DS) over next 3 sts, k1; rep from * to end

Row 10: knit to end

Row 11: k1, p1, k1, * work DS over next 3 sts, k1; rep from * to last 2 sts, p1, k1

Repeat rows 8-11 until work measures around 9cm and you are at the start of a Row 8 repeat.

Crown shaping

Row 1: *k2 tog; rep to last st, k1 (37 sts)

Row 2: k1, *work daisy stitch (DS) over next 3 sts, k1; rep from * to end

Row 3: *k2 tog; rep to last st, k1 (19 sts)

Row 4: *p2 tog; rep to last st, p1 (9 sts)

Cut a long tail, and thread it through the remaining stitches twice using the wool needle. Sew back seam and weave in ends.

Pom Pom

Make a pom pom using a store-bought pom pom maker or cardboard circles with a 1.4” (3.5cm) diameter. Attach securely to the hat’s peak.

Variations on the Tweedy Hat for Blythe dolls pattern

To create a vertically ridged effect instead of a diagonal ‘lattice’ texture, replace Row 11 with repeats of Row 9.


You shouldn’t need to block your hat.
