Smaller Yet! Knitted Woodland Hoodlet For 12" Fashion Dolls

This may be the smallest version of the fantastic Woodland Hoodlet pattern by Tiny Owl Knits that I attempt.  This is turning out right on target for 12" fashion dolls, at least judging by how the finished front  section looks held up against my Fashion Royalty Poppy Parker (The Bratter Lover's) doll.

I am knitting with lace weight extra fine merino yarn held double on size 0 US needles.  I purchased the yarn from my favorite yarn seller, Penelope's Fine Yarns on Etsy.  The yarn is a light yellow with a hint of gold, and is named "Buckskin-Straw Into Gold."  There's still a skein of it available at the time of this post.

This size has been more frustrating for me, especially when I hit the twelve stitch cables and the bobbles.  I have dropped more stitches on this version than the other three I have made combined.  Part of my problem is when I knit with yarn held double I can get mixed up on where my stitches really are, especially on tiny needles.  The other complication is just the small scale, period.  Now that I am done with the heavily cabled/bobbled front section, the rest should be much more relaxing, though.

For now, here are some pictures of the work in progress.
