Spring Time Outfit Dress and Hat 18" Doll Knitting Pattern

  |  

If you love lace, why not knit this lovely little dress for your doll?

This dress is knit from the bottom up.  The hem of the dress is made following a 4 row pattern repeat. You can knit the entire dress using only one color or change colors as indicated in the pattern. The lace pattern is not difficult but needs concentration. Small check boxes are included in the pattern instructions for each pattern repeat as there are 8 repeats in a row. The dress is knit flat with cast on stitches to create the sleeves. It has a back closure with 4 buttons. A short roll over collar with 2 buttons accents the front neckline.

The hat is worked flat with a back seam closure. The brim has a 2 row slipped stitches using a contrast color for that special look. You can either knit a thin band, use I - cord or just draw a ribbon through the eyelet rows.

Stitches used: knit, purl, YO, skp and knit 2 together.
