I think the dolls would look better with faces, the fact that it says "Dolly Mix" is enough for me to get that they're dolls, but from the thumbnail I thought they were mushrooms.
I think it'd reinforce the "stand out" if you put plain, non-emotional faces on all the black ones like: '_'   
Then on the pink one have a happy face such as: ^_^ (except with the mouth more smiley and maybe open)

So sorry to hear about your kids, hope they feel much better soon! But I'm glad to see that the hat is going well, it looks great!

How awesome is your daughter! I second the "I'm proud of her and don't even know her" remark, the world needs more kids that are excited about learning and creating.
I love how you described her catching on to the sc decrease, crochet was like that to me: so confusing, then "bam" and it all made sense (of course I was 19, not nine!) .
She sounds incredibly talented, be sure to tell her that she really has something to be proud of! I bet it won't be long before she's designing amigurumi patterns of her own!

Ooh! I've got this one! I hate obvious joins, but I love the look of fp and bp double crochet so I figured out a way to hide the joins when joining to a fpdc stitch.
You slip around the fpdc stitch (around the post) then ch 2, next you fpdc down into the same fpdc that you slipped to, so that the stitch now has a ch 2 and a fpdc coming up from it. The ch 2 is pushed to the back of the work so you can't see it, and you don't count it as a stitch, it's just there so the fpdc can be the right height. Then you just continue as usual. This makes a much better join than a ch 2, which looks wimpy and deflated compared to a fpdc stitch.

Big ol' update to the pattern! Added a cable-ing guide with photos to show how to cable. I'd really appreciate you guy's input on how it looks/if it makes sense, thanks!

Ohmigosh!!!!  I am getting really frustrated with this.
I couldn't figure out what row i was supposedly on, so i ripped the whole thing out.  The stitches I had didn't match up to what was in the pattern, so I couldn't figure out what to do. When i ripped it out, i found out i had evidently started with 16 stitches the last time - i don't know how the heck that happened?? I'm still not sure.
now i can't even get past the third row. i have the 24fdpc's, and i keep coming up with only 36 stitches in the next row, not 40. I have tried it 3 times. I had to turn off the TV even so i could try concentrating more on it, and I just don't get what the problem is.  ::::deep breathing::::

I recently updated the pattern so the standard size is medium instead of large, so if you started on the hat before the update there should be 16 stitches to begin with. If you restarted with 14 stitches to begin with you should have 28 fpdcs at the end of the second row, if you only have 24 then the third row will only give you 36 stitches, so the problem lies somewhere in rows 1-2, hope this makes sense.
