My little one that just turned 3 loves to dress her dolly. It runs in the family. Her 9 year old sister likes to take fabric and sew it into clothes for her dolls and stuffed animals. For the little one’s birthday I made some doll clothes for her. Here’s a hat and slippers set. And here’s a pattern for a quick little sweater I invented.
Fits a 12″ doll
Simply soft yarn (worsted weight)
This pattern is worked in the round without slipping and chaining at the end of each row except where noted…
