Knit doll dress free pattern – for a small doll


Doll Dress Pattern

This dress doesn’t use up much yarn and you are knitting it from the top down.

Using 3.25mm needles, cast on 27 sts, K1 P1 to end of row for 2 rows. This creates seed stitch border at top of dress. Beginning with a K row, st st 4 rows for small doll.

To make the waist:
(K5 K2tog) to last 6 sts, K4 K2tog. P 1 row.

(K4 K2tog) to last 5 sts, K3 K2tog. P 1 row.

(K3, inc in next st) to last 3 sts, K3. P 1 row.

(K4, inc in next st) to last 3 sts, K3. This makes the waist.

St st until piece measures 2.5 inches from cast on edge.

To make ruffle at bottom of dress:
K1 (yo, K1) to end of row. K 2 rows.

K1 (yo, K1) to end of row. K 1 row. Cast off.

Because the small doll doesn’t have the plastic bosom weight of a Barbie to hold up the dress, I added two crochet chain straps of 14 ch each.
