What little girl can’t resist tucking her doll up for the night into a comfy bed. This project would be a big hit as it includes doll, removable pinafore and pretty little sleeping bag.
The little doll is 8 inches (21 cms) and is knitted in Dk yarn on 3.25mm needles, and as only small amounts of yarn are needed it would be good for using up leftover yarn The pinafore is knitted in 4ply yarn on 3mm needles with crossover straps fastened by two little buttons.
The bed is 9 inches (23 cms) and is knitted in DK yarn on 4mm needles. The pillow edging is an eyelet edging knitted separately and sewn around top and sides of pillow and across the front cover of the bed. For and extra decorative effect and can be threaded with narrow ribbon or similar trim.
All pieces are knitted flat on two needles and sewn together.
As usual you can have lots of fun with colour combinations and the chances are you will make more than one set! It would make a great little stocking filler for Christmas and just the right toy for a sleepover at Nana’s.
The pattern is n 18 page PDF document which gives row by row instructions with plenty of images to help with construction. It is now available on Etsy and Ravelry and if you need any extra support do message me on Ravelry.
