Doll hooded scarf free pattern

In the interest of personal safety I have been explaining to my kids that the wearing of flimsy gloves below 10 C will result in frostbite and death. My son took this mostly to heart and won’t take his bonhomme bleu to school unless he’s wearing a scarf so he won’t freeze to death. He’s been using one of his own scarves so I decided to knit something bonhomme sized.

Naturally there were no patterns on the internet so I made one up. You can use it as long as you follow my copyright rules in the sidebar.

The doll, which I knit some time ago from a Jean Greenhowe pattern, is about 12 in tall. For the hooded scarf, which is a hat attached to a scarf, I used 4 mm needles.

Cast on 60 sts

Row 2: K
These 2 rows form the pattern for the scarf portion.
Row 3: (K3, P3) for 21 sts. Cast off next 4 sts K wise. K1, resume (K3, P3) pattern

Row 8: Cast off 25 sts K wise, K to end
Row 9: Cast off 25 sts K wise, inc K wise in next 8 sts, K 1

Begin hood
Switch to garter stitch.
Sl first st of every row, inc K wise in next st, K to last 2 sts, inc K wise in 2nd to last sts, K last st. Do this for every row until you have 48 sts (or less if your doll is smaller).

Knit seahorse free pattern

My kids think I have knitting superpowers so last week my son asked me to knit a seahorse for his dragon Blue. I balked because I imagine that this pattern will be difficult and complicated. Not to mention scarce. I told him I would check the computer and if I didn’t find a pattern he’d be outta luck.

The internet coughed up this relatively simple pattern as option #2.knit seahorse

knit in two pieces

knit in two pieces

I didn’t have enough blue yarn to do up the whole seahorse so it’s a multicoloured affair. I found that the knitting part wasn’t too bad but sewing the two pieces together was a bitch. I used 3.25 mm needles and Bernat yarn.

This is where I found the pattern http://www.nopatternrequired.com/2010/05/vintage-crafty-saturday-free-seahorse-goldfish-knitted-softies-pattern/

Knit snowman and snow woman doll free pattern

See sidebar for copyright info.

Don’t know how I got this idea, but once it was in my head I had to do something about it. I devised a knit snowman pattern with removable hat and scarf so the kids can accessorize the little guy. I’m going to knit a skirt for my daughter’s snowwoman, but for now, here’s what I’ve got.

I used 4.5 mm needles which resulted in a 6 inch snowman. You can use whatever size needle and yarn you like.

B & T tightly

Turn inside out and sew row ends together, leaving bottom open. Turn right side out and stuff. Tie a string tightly around the 2 decrease rows to create the 3 “ball” snowman and sew in ends. Gather cast on sts and pull shut, trying to give the snowman a bit of a flat bottom so he can stand on his own.

Arms

Make 2 alike

Cast on 6 sts
Beg P row st st 9 rows

Sew row ends together with right sides facing out. Stuff. Gather up cast on sts, pull together and sew to snowman, 2 rows below “neck”.

Knit resistance and fidget toy free pattern

When my son gets anxious, he starts chewing on his hands in a damaging way so I needed to come up with a “hand-y” alternative. Here’s what I knit.

fidget and chewing toy

fidget and chewing toy

It’s a simple knit 5 sts I-cord that I looped over on both ends and sewed in this shape.

When I designed this, my thoughts were that he could grab each end and pull it (it has some stretch) to fidget with it and then chew on the bridge portion when he was getting anxious. What he did was slip both ends over his wrists like handcuffs and pull his arms apart from each other, sort of like a calisthenic exercise. And he chewed on the middle.

He was so delighted with his new gizmo that he ordered me to make one for his sister so she could be as happy as he was. I said, I don’t think she’ll get the same bang out of it that you do. She didn’t even deign to look up at me. She likes her jewellery sparkling.

The Grinchy Claus vest free pattern

I provided a pattern for “a quick Santi Claus hat” a few posts ago and now I have the coat. Well, sort of. I started with the doll vest pattern and thought I’d add sleeves but the armholes were too big and Hubby pointed out that our daughter is still 3 and would have difficulty dressing the Grinch, so I left it at Santi Claus vest.

The Grinch in his clandestine outfit to fool Cindy Loo Who who was no more than 2 (but had a surprisingly extensive vocabulary.  Maybe it's a Who thing).

Knit doll vest free pattern for 12 inch doll

I got the original pattern from Martha Stewart, via Pinterest and it can be found here: http://www.marthastewart.com/951165/knitted-vest. It looked doll size in the picture but when I went to download the pattern I found out that it’s actually for children so I adapted the pattern to doll size.

Here’s my adapted pattern.

KNIT VEST FOR A 12 inch DOLL
Knitting needles 4.0 mm
Seed Stitch: Row 1- K1, P1 to end. Row 2- K the K sts and P the P sts. Actually my least favourite knitting stitch.

Front:

Cast on 15 stitches. Work in seed stitch for 3.25 inches.
Begin armhole, shaping on one side only; decrease 1 stitch, and continue in seed stitch until end of row.
Seed stitch 1 row.
Decrease 1 stitch; continue in seed stitch until end of row.
Seed stitch 1 row.
Decrease 1 stitch; continue in seed stitch until end of row.
Seed stitch 1 row.
Decrease 1 stitch; continue in seed stitch until end of row.
Seed stitch 3 rows.
Decrease 1 stitch; continue in seed stitch until end of row.
Seed stitch 3 rows.
Decrease 1 stitch; continue in seed stitch until end of row.
Seed stitch 4 rows.

Begin shaping neckline on side opposite armhole:
Decrease 1 stitch; continue in seed stitch until end of row.
Seed stitch 1 row.
Decrease 1 stitch; continue in seed stitch until end of row.
Seed stitch 1 row.
Decrease 1 stitch; continue in seed stitch until end of row.
Seed stitch 3 rows.
Bind off.

For the second front piece, repeat all steps, with armhole and neckline on the alternate sides. For the first piece, decrease for armhole at beginning of row and decrease for neckline at end of row. For second piece, decrease for armhole and end of row and decrease for neckline at beginning of row.

Back:
Cast on 30 stitches.
Work in seed stitch for 3.25 inches.
Begin shaping armhole on both sides of knit piece: Decrease 1 stitch each at beginning and end of row; continue in seed stitch in between.
Seed stitch 1 row.
Decrease 1 stitch each at beginning and end of row; continue in seed stitch in between.
Seed stitch 1 row.
Decrease 1 stitch each at beginning and end of row; continue in seed stitch in between.

Seed stitch 3 rows.
Decrease 1 stitch each at beginning and end of row; work in seed stitch in between.
Seed stitch 3 rows.
Decrease 1 stitch each at beginning and end of row; continue in seed stitch in between.
Seed stitch 12 rows.
Bind off.

Pockets:
Cast on 6 stitches.
Work in seed stitch for 1.25 inches.
Cast off. Sew to vest front.

Sew vest together and sc around all edges.

PS- This vest is kind of long for this doll so if you wanted it shorter, instead of knitting every piece to 3.25 inches before making the armholes, only knit 2.25 inches. Or make it longer if you want a coat.

PPS- Because I dislike the seed stitch so much, I actually just garter stitched the back piece and seed stitched the 2 front vest pieces. And I didn’t add pockets. Or a sc border.

Knit fingerless gloves for children free pattern

With winter preparations underway, I knit some fingerless gloves for my son to add another layer between him and the cold. He’s also super sensitive to the cold so even at 25 C he’s wearing his poncho. I thought these would be nice and snug around his arms but he could still use his hands. They appeal to his sensory nature of wanting to be wrapped up too.

Knit doll sofa free pattern

knit doll sofa free pattern knit doll sofa free pattern[/caption]Again, internet not very forthcoming with free knit or crochet patterns for doll furniture so I designed my own. I used what was left of the perfume box from the previous post’s chair and table.

This "frame" is 2 inches high & 3.5 inches long

This “frame” is 2 inches high & 3.5 inches long

I covered the cardboard frame with a knit piece

I covered the cardboard frame with a knit piece

For this particular piece of cardboard I used 4mm needles, 18 sts and knit it 12 inches long. I folded the piece in half, put the cardboard inside and sewed it shut around the cardboard.

To make the sofa back I cast on 18 sts and knit a square. I rolled it up and sewed it to the back.

To make the armrests I cast on 6 sts and knit a roughly 1.5 inch strip, rolled it up and sewed it to the sides.

You can adjust this idea to make any sized sofa. This pattern put together is copyrighted by me, Anna Merlini but you can use it to make your own doll sofas if you give me credit for the pattern and link back to this blog. You can’t use this pattern to make doll sofas to sell.
