Cheerful Cables Knit Dress 18" Doll Clothes Knitting Pattern

3 reviews   |  

The Cheerful Cables Dress is a versatile, all-occasion knit with a refined, under-stated elegance. A classic, tailored dress silhouette is used to showcase two pretty, decorative elements; a lacy, V-neck detail on the fitted bodice, and cabled skirt with slight A-line flare. Worked from the top down, and using both straight and circular knitting, this knit employs a seamless construction method to minimize bulky seams. Raglan sleeves with additional increases are used to create short sleeves with a gentle puffed appearance. Integrated garter button bands create a full, rear opening for easy dressing. Designed to fit 18-inch soft bodied dolls such as American Girl® and Maplelea® dolls, this pattern includes two length options for creating a dress that falls above the knee or, just below the knee. This knit is rated intermediate as it includes both cabling and knitting in the round for sleeve finishing.

Sweet Dress Pattern

This pattern is very well written. The dress knits up quickly. The eyelet neckline and cable skirt give this dress a touch of elegance. It opens fully in the back for easy dressing. Your doll will love it❤️

Cheerful Cables

I thoroughly enjoyed knitting this pattern. I love how it fits the doll. The cable is easy to knit and once you get the hang of it, it is smooth sailing.
