I didn't think about it when I wrote it but, you could also do like... two popcorns or baubles too.

Exactly.  You could do two sc in say... two or three single sc stitches, one in each sc space between and do the same in the second.  And on your next round, keep increasing, do a single sc in each or decrease, depending how big you want your doll to be.

I know it's a little late but, have you found www.crochetpatterncentral.com (go to the directory) or Ravelry.com (you have to sign up but it's free)?

Just, as you get to her chest part, increase the amount of stitches you have and decrease real quick.  Or make two of the popcorn stitches, bobbles... whatever you want to call them.

Don't worry.  It's not near as complicated as it seems like it should be.  First, you should learn this wonderful thing called a 'Magic Loop', you can find it here: http://crochetme.com/Dec_Jan_0405/reads_round.html or you can search for 'magic loop crochet' on YouTube and watch videos.  Once you've mastered that, which is very simple, then start your crocheting in the round.  When I do it, flat or in the round, I always keep the yarn color that I want to be hidden on top of the rows so when I make my next stitch, the second color is hidden.  You can just hold your main color in your hand and only pick up the second one when you need it.  It's really simple once you get the hang of it.  If you need me to explain that more, I'll be happy to try.  Hope that helps.

Have you tried www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory and go to 'Scarves'?  They have a -ton- of patterns there and they're all free.

www.crochetpatterncentral.com then you can go to the section for hats.  There's a ton of patterns in there.  If you can't find a zig-zag pattern for the hat, you could easily modify a standard circular pattern.

haha I know what you mean and as far as I know, there is no name for it.  It's just using a larger gauge hook than your yarn calls for.  Hope that helps.

I don't know how well you can crochet so it's kind of hard to just give a 'quick fix' kind of answer.  But, there are a lot of edging here:
