Her sweater dress is stranded colorwork, using the template for raglan sweaters from the Arne&Carlos 'Knitted Dolls' book; the patterns are from Alice Starmores book 'Charts for Color Knitting'. The sweater is knit to Arne&Carlos's instructions, but with worsted yarn and size 6 double point needles.
Here is the colorwork pattern for the dress:
Click on the link and you should get a gridded pattern for the body of the sweater and for the sleeve. If necessary, enlarge the image so you can see the individual grid lines. The body pattern is one half of the dress body; the sleeve pattern is for the whole sleeve. Best if you have Arne&Carlos's book for the sweater construction directions.
Joy is smaller than the original Arne&Carlos dolls, about 12 inches tall. I think she is going to have some Hippie sisters joining her soon!
