Dolls and their clothes :-)

I've been working on two dolls from Deena Thomson-Menards Lottie pattern, one for a Knit Along, and the other while waiting for the next pattern in the Knit Along to be revealed :-) 

Rachael Bleu is a slightly smaller version of Deena's doll, about 19 inches tall.  She's close to American Girl size, which is a nice size to knit for.  I made her a blue tunic sweater from a free pattern on Ravely, which you can find here.

I also worked up a raglan sleeve pattern and a jumper dress for Rachael, both very simple knits:

Little Lottie Raglan Sweater

Little Lottie Jumper Dress

Hope your hooks and needles are humming with Christmas gifts :-)

  2. So very cute! Thank you for sharing. I have a rag doll the height of an AG doll but with very narrow shoulders, so these might suit her.
    I thought about joining he Litl Lottie knit along, but I worry that I'll get lost because of the US/UK terminology differences., so will start with an outfit!

    1. Jenann, I'm sure if you should decide to join one of Deena's KAL's, there are plenty of folks willing to help out with the terminology. It is a lot of fun to share the knitting in a group like this!

      Raglan sweaters are neat in that they fit almost any shape :-)

      Enjoy!

  3. So cute. I love your work. It makes me wish I could knit. Crochet is my craft and I have noticed you also share crochet patterns for dolls and their clothes. I hope to get around to making one some day soon.

  5. Love this doll. She looks quite sassy in her pretty red jumper and turtleneck sweater. I'm sure it's a nice change to make doll clothes for a 19" doll. We are used to seeing your work in the 9" sizes and smaller. At any size all of your creations, wee, small, medium, tall are always AMAZING.

    Enjoy the remaining days of autumn before winter claims you.

  6. I love the pattern too, and you're right; it is fun to knit for a larger doll :-) I just finished making more cover-button eyes: three 5/8 inch and five 3/4 inch. Now for some more dolls!

    I think Winter claimed us already...got down to 15F last night. Sheesh...this is the average low for January, not November!! Hope things are warmer for you, and that your hooks and needles are humming :-)

    Warmly,

  7. She's beautiful - just like all of your other dolls! You are such an inspiration :-)

    I finally finished my first doll - she's a cross between your Bleuette and Free Spirit - her name is Violet McFernleaf, she's 16" tall and I'm almost afraid to share a link to her as I think she is an Amazon LOL. Overall, I'm not displeased with her and I'm certainly game to try another with smaller yarn & hook. Please be gentle, but I'd appreciate you input.

    Ok, here goes ---- http://in-the-yard.com/crochet-rediscovering-old-love/

    1. Your doll is terrific! I love that you combined Bleuette and Free Spirit, and 16 inches is a fine size for a doll. Bravo!!

      Warmly,

  8. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement <3! She was a lot of fun to make, I wanted the Free Spirit head because it was longer and thinner and I though more appropriate for a Fairy.
