A Sentimental Project
(Cincinnati, OH USA)
American Girl Samantha Wearing 0027 Kirsten -
Forget-Me-Not Summer Dress
This is the first of Maulfrid's patterns that I knit. This was for a group knit along project that Maulfrid generously sponsored.
I was so happy with the group's choice of this pattern since it is one of my favorite designs and for the sentimental reason that Forget Me Not flowers were one of my mother's favorites. Every time I picked the project up to work on it I thought of her.
Each garment included in this pattern has a design element that kept the knitting interesting and enjoyable. I loved the easily executed floral borders on the scarf and dress, and all the sweet drawstring cords at the sweater cuffs and at the waistband of the pants. Probably my favorite element of this pattern was how nicely the shoulder area and neckline of the dress fit to cover the cloth body of this doll.
This is a wonderful design and I hope to make it again soon.
