Crochet chain and lace through sc row for tie.
Make different sizes by measuring doll’s head plus ¼ inch to ½ inch and use even number of chain stitches. You can also use this pattern for real people by measuring their head and adding ½ - 1 inch to your chain and keeping it an even number of chains. Then you mark the half-way chain for the center front. You can work as many rows as you need to reach between the elbow and the wrist.
