ITTY BITTY 5-INCH BABY DOLL PATTERNS

April, 2012
Created by Elaine Baker - “Ladyfingers”

Materials Required:

BABY DOLL JACKET WITH COLLAR

Cast on 30 stitches. Knit in garter stitch (knit every row) for 10 rows.

Place Markers, as follows:
Knit 3, Purl 2, place marker, Purl 3, place marker, Purl 10, place marker, Purl 3, place marker, Purl 2, KNIT 3. (Always keep the first and last 3 stitches in KNIT for border).
Row 1: Knit, increasing BEFORE and AFTER each marker (8 stitches increased).
Row 2: Knit 3, Purl, slipping markers - with no increase, end with Knit 3.
Continue working Rows 1 & 2 until stitches are divided, as follows:
9, marker, 11, marker, 18, marker, 11, marker, 9 = 58 sts
Sleeves:
Knit 9, remove marker, Knit 11 - remove marker, TURN, purl back on these 11 sleeve stitches. Knit and purl on only the sleeve stitches for 4 rows. Then knit in garter stitch for 6 rows. Bind off. Leave a 6-inch strand to sew sleeve seam.
Attach yarn after completed sleeve, Knit 18 stitches, remove marker, Knit 11, remove marker, TURN, purl back on these 11 stitches. Work the second sleeve same as the first one. Attach yarn after completed second sleeve, Knit 9.

Body of Jacket:
Work in stockinet stitch (knit 1 row, purl 1 row) for 4 rows. Then knit in garter stitch for 6 rows. Bind off.
Option #1: Sew up the front of the jacket from the bottom hem up ¾ inch - leave enough room to dress the doll feet first.
Option 2: Make two tie cords - crochet a chain of 30 stitches - attach a chain to each side of the jacket half-way between the hem and the collar.
Option 3: If you can’t crochet, knit tie cords by casting on 30 stitches, knit across IN THE BACK OF EACH STITCH, then immediately bind off. (Make 2).

BABY DOLL LONG PANTS

Cast on 34 stitches. Rib in K1, P1 for 4 rows. Work in stockinet stitch for 4 rows.
Next Row: Knit 17 stitches, PLACE CENTER MARKER, Knit 17.
