Doll's Blue Easter Bonnet, free pattern

The pattern for this doll's Easter bonnet has been something I've worked on since Easter, now I think I'm ready to share. Please let me know what you think, or if there are any problems with it. The gauge is determined by measuring the diameter of the first 2 rounds, which should be 3cm if this hat is being made for a fashion doll like Barbie by Mattel.

7 easy rounds make up this doll's hat, including 6 scallops in the brim
