Model 0129D GYDA - Dress, Pants, Jacket, Hairband and
(This pattern fits 17" - 18" dolls like American Girl doll, Baby born and Alexander doll)
When I first started knitting these clothes, they were meant for Easter! However, I was not able to finish them in time. Then I decided to knit some lovely clothes for springtime for my doll Gyda. I had chosen this beautiful yellow color.
The pattern I have used I knitted for my own kids when they were small. It is pretty and fit well for doll clothes. I started knitting the dress. The edge is knitted in moss stitch and so it the yoke. The dress is ...
... buttoned along the back of the yoke and the collar has a nice row of the pattern over the 4 rows inside edge sts.
When I knit the pants, I knit pattern above each other along each side inside 3 edge sts in moss sts at each side. I knitted the pants as well in yellow.
As American Girl doll is “an older doll” than Baby born I knitted a beautiful hairband for her. I used ...
... the same patterns inside moss sts at each side as I did for the pants. The hairband is buttoned together back.
As the dress is short sleeved, I knitted her a warm white jacket to wear for cold days. For the jacket, I have also used these rows of pattern. One row at each side front and one row along the center back. The edge is knitted in moss sts and it has three buttons along the frontband.
Finished with the jacket ...
... I thought Baby born would be cuter with a lovely little bonnet. I knitted her a bonnet to work out nicely together with this jacket. Looking at my doll Gyda dressed in the new clothes I thought she was well dressed for coming lovely spring days.
However, some socks were needed together with this garment. Therefore, I knitted some white knee socks in white.
I hope you too will like to knit these clothes for your doll! Good luck!
