Victoria Gets a Valentine! 8" Baby Doll Knitting Pattern

2 reviews   |  

Victoria got a new dress and heart pillow for Valentine’s Day! So cute! She loves them both!

Her new dress has adorable puffy sleeves. The zig zag lace pattern in the skirt creates a lovely open design. There are 2 options for the hemline... a lacey edge created with the Channel Island Bind Off and the standard knit bind off.

The heart is a super fast knit! If you are an intermediate or advanced knitter, it can be an open canvas for trying out other decorative stitches!

This PDF knitting pattern by Love U Bunches  is designed to fit 8” Baby Dolls such as American Girl® “Caring for Baby” Doll, but may work for similar sized dolls.

Recommended Yarns:  Heritage Fingering Yarn by Cascade Yarns®, Stroll Fingering Yarn by KnitPicks®. Note regarding yarn choice: To show the beautiful lace stitch definition in the skirt, pick a yarn that is in the thinner range of Category 1. It also helps to pick a yarn with a tight twist.

8" Baby doll dress

This is a wonderful pattern to knit for the 8" baby doll. The instructions are very well written and easy to follow. I had to pay close attention to knit the skirt in the lace design but the sample to practice knit helped alot. The lace design of the skirt is worth the effort. The little heart is a fun and easy knit.
