Beaded Beauty Doll Clothes Knitting Pattern for 18 Inch Dolls

3 reviews   |  

This sophisticated off-the-shoulder top by Love U Bunches features a gorgeous beaded collar and fitted bodice. It is knit flat in one piece from the top down. No seams! Four little buttons and buttonholes form the back closure.
The collar has 51 beads that are knit into the Garter Stitch collar during the cast on. So many different beads to choose from (glass, plastic, clear, metallic, designer)!
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... a bead and yarn color combination for every season and every occasion! The top is also fabulous without beads or knit in two different colors for a two-toned look! The options are endless!


This pattern is designed to fit 18” dolls with measurements similar to the model: Chest: 11”, Waist: 10.5”, Hips: 11”.  This top pairs beautifully with the Classic Wrap Skirt as shown in the cover photo.

Easy and Sweet

Loved how quickly this little sweater makes up! Used Glittery Red yarn I had in stash and used pearls for beading and shanked pearl buttons. Adorable! Will be making more of this pattern and adding sleeves for another option.

Beaded beauty doll clothes knitting pattern

It was fun to knit and very easy. Turned out to be exactly like the picture! Knitting on #2 needles is not my favorite but this was well worth it.

Beautiful sweater, easy to knit

A very clearly laid out pattern, easy and quick to knit. I loved the idea of adding beads to the cast on edge - a new technique for me. I loved this so much I knitted three of them!
