Here is a series of photos for knitting the skating costume.

1. This photo shows the sleeve "straps", bodice, and striped panties are complete. The next step is to pick up the stitches to make the full skating skirt.

2. Top straps are completed, bodice complete to the waist, this photo shows the needle slipped through the "purl bumps" to pick up stitches (after the panties are made). The piece is folded with the bodice facing you (panties folded in back) so you can see the "loops" made by the purl bumps.
3. Close-up of ice skate - blade attached to bottom of boot.
(one end of paper clip slipped into bottom of knitted boot, and
tied with a tight knot around the blade and under the boot).
4. Skates "in action".
5. Completed skating costume, with full skirt attached.
6. Skating costume showing the striped panties.


NOTE: The metal paper clips will fold over on their sides if you attempt to make the doll stand on the skates. If you have a metal or wooden doll stand, place her about an inch off the floor and pose her legs for "skating", without touching the ground.

All your outfits are just marvellous and very beautiful.

I have to ask though ... what do you do with them, you must have hundreds of them.

Oh Elaine, Your designs seem to get better & better if that is even possible!!! You are the greatest & for sharing with us. Still think you need to compile a book & I would be 1st in line to buy one. After I finish my GD knitted hat I will be doing Christmas presents AG & Barbie patterns for her.

Go to the top of the page, middle section, click on "Search" then type "Ladyfingers" and click on the Search button. A long list will open.

On the left side column where it says "Pictures", this indicates that the topic includes a set of photos of various dolls modeling knitted outfits. Photos - NO PATTERNS. There are over 90 photos for the AG doll, many photos for Barbie, and a few pictures for the tiny baby dolls.

Quite a few knitters have notified me that they have a 3-ring binder with all photos downloaded, along with the 3 handouts for the American Girl doll and the Barbie handout that was e-mailed to over 1,447 knitters on this website. These photos and handouts are all kept in clear plastic sheet protectors. The knitters say it is easier to refer to their binder, rather than search this website to find a similar photo for one of the patterns they are knitting from one of the handouts.

To receive copies of the 3 AG handouts and the Barbie handout, (which include lots of patterns), send me an e-mail to:

[email protected]

I will send you the handouts via reply e-mail ASAP.

Also on the left side column, look for "User Submitted, How-To's, Patterns, Tutorials:. This is where I have posted quite a few patterns over the past weeks. There is a variety of AG doll clothes, Barbie outfits, and tiny baby clothes for the 5-inch itty bitty baby doll and the 8-1/2 inch "Cutsie" baby doll (you can order this one from Mary Maxim catalog).

You will find the pattern and photo(s) for the Skating/Ballerina Costume - with an explanation that a photo tutorial will be coming with explanations for how to attach the full skating skirt and how to attach the paperclip "blades" to the ice skating boots.

One knitter here has provided us with a PDF Download format for making copies of all the patterns posted to the "User....sub-section". When you open one of the titles, scroll down to comments by "Daeanarah" (who is Rhyanna in real life), to find the download button in the middle of the page of her comments. Then just click on the download button and it will open a very nice copy of the pattern and photo on your computer for easy printing.

Keep checking this sub-section: "User Submitted.......", I will be posting more patterns periodically.

Another way to get to the "User Submitted, How-To's, Patterns, Tutorials" sub-section is to go to the top of the page, LEFT SIDE, and click on "Knitting Forum". This will open to a list of topics that are discussed here on this forum. Scroll down to the topics in the "User Submitted....." sub-section to find patterns by Ladyfingers.

wow, this is so thorough! Thank you so much. I think even I , will be able to do this. I've hardly ever "surfed" and your instructions are so clear it sounds easy. Thank you for taking the time, and for sharing so much. Sue
