...and just a couple more patterns.

A couple of more patterns for the Grace Notes; a raglan sleeved cardigan sweater, tee-shirt, and shorts:

Tee Shirt and Shorts

Raglan-sleeve Cardigan

The shorts can be made longer for pants, and the tee shirt would make a great dress bodice.  Sweaters are always nice too :-)  All of these are knit with light worsted yarn and size 3 needles, mostly in the round except the cardigan (the sleeves are knit in the round, then joined into the body).

Happy knitting!

  1. I simply must dust off my needles and try these. Your work is always so inspiring. I haven't tried double points. I checked YouTube for the magic loop tutorial. Looks reasonably easy. Love all these cute outfits. Your creations are always fashion forward. Really am enjoying your lovely knits lately.

    Kind regards, Joyce

    1. I'd love to see one of these dolls come off your creative needles, dear Joyce! I have to tell you, the first doll(s) I made with double points just about drove me crazy, especially the first two rounds (Arne&Carlos dolls a couple years ago).

      Truly, practice helps, and now they are not so disturbing to use, and the seamless body and more even fabric gauge are worth the effort. Go for it!!

      Warmly,

      Beth

  2. I have tried to make a doll for my gr daughter like your dolls except I can't stop the head from flopping when I attach hair...is there anything you do extra to help the head from flopping backwards?

    1. Most of the dolls I make have a re-enforced neck, with either a wooden dowel rod or twisted pipe cleaner&batting. This doll used the twisted pipe cleaner and batting method. The instructions to do this are in the pattern.

      Hope this helps,

      Beth
