Crow Shay here. I’ve been itching to crochet and I told Mary Frances we should make something orange and brown for one of her American Girl Dolls since Fall is here and Halloween is around the corner. Mary Frances thought her doll, Emily, needed a new sweater and that a cardigan would be a nice layering piece. I called out to Wooley Ball to fetch the yarn and when he found it, I went to town crocheting up a storm! That sweater was done in no time flat so I decided to surprise Mary Frances by making a matching hat. She loved it! Mary Frances had learned how to make Pom Poms in The Mary Frances Knitting and Crocheting Book 100th Anniversary Edition, so she made a cute multi-colored Pom Pom and added it to one side of the hat. Angelina is now one happy doll!

 This is the Crocheted Sports Sweater (Chapter 37) and Little Crocheted Hat (Chapter 33) made from Caron Simply Soft yarn.
