Seaside Summer 18" Doll Clothes Knitting Pattern

2 reviews   |  

Create a complete beach look for a day at the beach. This is a six piece pattern which includes a beach dress, skirt, two piece swim suit, beach bag, and a hat.

The pattern stitch used is a 3 row repeat cat's eye lace stitch which is reversible. In fact you do not need to worry about wrong or right sides although the sides are included in the pattern. All the pieces are knit flat from the bottom upwards. The front and back of the dress are done separately so the dress has side seams. There is a buttoned closure at the shoulders for easy dressing.

Stitches used: knit, purl, YO, skp, kf&b, and knit 2 together
