I looooved American Girl dolls when I was little. By the time I was 13, I had four: Samantha, Felicity, Kirsten and a Girl of Today (the one above). My sister had a few, too, and we were both totally obsessed. We didn't have a ton of outfits and accessories, though - holy, expensive!
So when my sister told me that my niece, Madigan, would be receiving her first full-sized American Girl doll, and her baby sister, Emlyn, would be gifted a Bitty Baby, I knew I had to knit them some less-expensive accessories.
I scoured Ravelry for good patterns, but my findings were a bit lacking. There's a lot of dowdy dresses, but not much in the way of cute, modern accessories. So I came up with my own pattern!

American Girl Winter Gear for Madigan
The idea for the hat was based on Pickles' From Norway With Love Hat - but it's doll-sized! I knit a matching double-knit scarf with hearts, and came up with little mittens.
I'm planning to put together a little pattern so all those American Girl Doll-lovers out there can have their own set!
