Tools & Materials
1 set double-pointed knitting needles, size US#5 or size to get gauge
1 set double-pointed knitting needles, size US#4 or one size smaller than size to get gauge
tapestry needle
A few yards of light worsted weight yarn (beanie in photo knit with Karabella Aurora Melange, color 006)
 
Gauge
5.5 sts/8rows = 1" stockinette stitch in the round

Pattern
This beanie is knit from the top down on double-pointed needles.  A variation done flat is on my blog.
For inc 1 (increase one stitch), I prefer to knit one into the row below.  Use what you prefer - make 1, yarn forward, and knit front and back are all good choices.  The pattern of increases will give straight spoke increases.

With larger needles, CO 8 sts.
1) k all (8 sts)
2) *k1, inc 1* (16 sts)
3) k all
4) *inc 1, k2* (24 sts)
5) k all
6) *k3, inc 1* (32)
7) k all
8] *inc 1, k4* (40)
9) k all
10) *k5, inc 1* (48)
11) k all
12) *inc 1, k6* (56)
13) k all
Blythe: skip to round 15
14) *k7, inc 1* (64)
15 - 26) k all
begin brim: use ribbing or other stitch pattern which will not roll.
Switch to smaller needles.
27 - 32) *k1, p1*
Blythe: BO
Pullip: if you would like a shorter beanie as shown in the photo, BO
33 - 37) continue working in pattern *k1, p1* for longer beanie

Weave in ends.

I never knew Blythe dolls existed before I found craftster.org.  I love the dolls and I love the hat you made for yours.

Thanks!  I really ought to get some better photos taken, and get a couple more versions of the beanie up - this is really easy to dress up with buttons, flowers, pins, etc. for different looks.

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.

Thanks for sharing this pattern. I also don't know how I missed seeing this way back in Oct. I always log on and do a search for Blythe patterns and somehow missed it.

I love making doll clothing and it's getting so difficult finding nice patterns. I also look for American Girl doll stuff.
