Rindy 18" Doll Clothes Knitting Pattern

3 reviews   |  

Two lovely dresses - same pattern stitch with a completely different look! Both dresses are knit flat from the hem upwards with a back buttoned closure. The stitch used is a vintage shell stitch that I modified so that it forms a crochet like shell stitch.

  • Dress 1: The frilly hem of the dress has a 31/4’’ (8.5 cm) of the pattern stitch and 2 rows of the pattern stitch appears over the bodice. The short puffy sleeves are knit first then joined together at the bodice.
  • Dress 2: The entire part of the skirt is done in 2 colors. The dress has 3/4 sleeves that you can make longer or shorter.

This PDF Knitting Pattern by Marinda Creations is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Recommended Yarn:  Any Light DK (Double knit ) / Weight 3 yarn or even a Sports weight that will give you the appropriate gauge.
