American Girl Doll knitting patterns Doll knitting patterns especially designed for 18" American Girl Doll Kirsten
As you may know, American Girl is a doll collection based on girl characters from various time periods of American history. The dolls live through important times in America. Each doll represent a character with her own story and values, and provide a child's perspective of significant events that helped to shape the US. During the last 20 years fourteen million American Girl Dolls have been purchased! I couldn't believe it, but yes, it is true. Through decades American Girl Doll has been a heroine and good friend to a lot of little American girls.
American Girl Doll Kirsten visits Norway
Kirsten believes America will be a land filled with opportunity.
After a long
journey on a small ship, one of the American Girl Doll characters, Kirsten Larsson, arrive
in America in the summer of 1854. Everything in the new Land is different from
the small village Kirsten left behind in Sweden. Proud to be a settler, she
starts her new life in America, and she believes in her father; America will be
a land filled with opportunity for them all.
Målfrid and I have invited Kirsten to visit the Land of her origin, Scandinavia. She
arrived on a rainy day in November. Målfrid is eager to design an entirely new
collection of knitting patterns, all special to fit Kirsten. We planned to
create one per month in 2009. We also want to take Kirsten on a
Scandinavian trip visiting places typical for her story and character. Of
course, we are going to take pictures of the cloths with this environment as a background.
We look forward to this, and we hope you will enjoy it.
Kirsten arrived in time to get her new Nordic Christmas clothes
from Målfrid. (Thanks to Målfrid, she is the best).
