Create an easy dungaree or shorts and knitted helmet for your 8 inch baby doll!
The dungaree (pants) / shorts are knitted flat, starting with the legs and joined together at the crotch to create the upper part. It has a back buttoned opening and also shoulder straps for easy dressing. You can knit the set using only one color or use two or more colors for that special look.
The helmet is knitted starting with the brim, knit the body of the helmet then bind off stitches to create the flap. On completion of the flap you need to pick up the stitches at both sides so together with the stitches of the flap it will create the neck band. Here also you can use different colors of your choice.
Have fun with color choices on this cute set!
