You could use really thin yarn and small needles, andcut down the sts and rows by half. Instead of a k2 p2 rib, do a k1 p1. Depends on the size of the doll head.

Or maybe a snug hat pattern and modify it. Something like this hat

though you didn't say what size your doll & it's head are.

For some reason this made me giggle... I think it's the image of me measuring a doll head in my head... hehe

I was thinking a you could modify a hat pattern too - maybe cast on 3/4 of the sts for a doll hat, knit flat for a bit then cast on the remaining sts and join in the round to finish the hat.

That pink hair do hat is hysterical! I better not let me 5 yr old see it or she will definitely want one! If it's pink, she's got to have it!

Good luck working it out for the doll. I think the above suggestions are good ones. A little trial and error and you'll get it.

I agree with trial and error - when you are trying something new you have to be prepared to redo a few times until you can see how things are shaping up.
