So many of you have requested specific patterns for quite a few of the photo outfits. These outfits were created without a pattern, knit from the neck down and decisions made as I went along.
Maybe I should take the time to write up a pattern to match each photo and put it in a booklet - per the request of some of you knitters.
Here are more "off the top of my head designs" - no patterns....yet.
Photo 1: This is an outrageous pair of P.J.'s for a slumber party. I wanted to try a multi striped blue yarn and made a simple top, then trimmed it in more of the terrific soft furry yarn. It looked stupid when completed, so I added a pair of short pants, also trimmed in the fur yarn. Almost tossed the two pieces out. Had a sudden idea to add a ridiculous pair of furry, fuzzy slippers - and the slumber party outfit was born!
Photo 2: If you check out the boots you'll see one missing. I ran out of that lovely "Lamb" color and had to order another ball from Herschenner's. The second boot is now complete.
Photo 3: I had some very fine yarn that was scattered with many, many sequins. I had a ball in white, one in black, and one in varigated white, gray and black. Used the varigated on to make a basic sleeveless dress with full skirt. The yarn made a black and white striped pattern with some gray thrown in. When I put it on the doll, it looked too "adult" for her. So (light bulb went on over my head......) I giggled and knit a soft red furry boa that I wrapped around her throat and let the ends dangle down. Then completed a furry red headband. Can't you just see her at the school auditorium on the stage, prancing around and mouthing the words to "That Old Black Magic"?!
"Lamb" colored sweater,pants,cap
I would like to have patterns of you 18 inch doll clothes. I am new to the forum but have done both machine and needle knitting. I am learning the round and loom knitting. I am always interested in learning something new. email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you ever thought of publihing your patterns? They certainly are good enough.
These are just great! I appreciate all of the work you have done to provide us with the pattern-less patterns. You are a true designer as well as an excellent knitter. Rock on!!!
Very nice I admire these garments you knit for the dolls you do a lovely job well done
I didn't notice the missing boot until you pointed it out. That was funny.
Your designs are great! Will look forward to more printed directions. Thanks for keeping us all busy knitting for our "special little girls". Janet

I will be interested in purchasing a book of your patterns.
I would buy your book, too!
Your work has inspired me a lot
Thank you for providing ideas and willing to share descriptions on how to make them. I also, as everybody here, would love to buy a complete book of instructions ..:)
I am sure the knitting companies would love you as a designer. Your work is outstanding. It has the Oh! factor. I love looking to see what you have done
The outfits are sooo cute! Wish I had time to make some for my Chatty Cathy doll, but too busy now with real baby clothes.
