Knit Garter Stitch Dress For American Girl Doll


I have accumulate lots of 4 ply yarns. I can't used them to crochet doll clothes because they are too bulky. I used to knit when I was 13.  I knit sweaters, jumpers and shirts for  my niece.  After 27 years, I forgot how to knit all of them.  I made all those patterns up so hopefully one day they will came back to me.

I found this easy pattern on knitting forum.   The purple and yellow dress used Caron Simply soft yarn.  They turned out so pretty.  But they took so long to make.

This white and pink dress used Red Heart yarn.  That yarn felt like sand paper. My fingers are cracking and peeling from using that yarn.
You can fine the dress tutorial here.  However, because I used different yarn (mine are 4ply) I reduced the number of stitches.  I crochet the hats and purse.  They are super quick to make.

Have a wonderful week!  Stay warm....

Love all the dresses you made! You have been busy crocheting and knitting!
I know how to knit too but have not done it for 25 years. Not sure if I still remember how.
