    Here’s my little Nora in a hat and cardi I knitted a little while ago . . . it’s a top down, in baby yarn, but I usually prefer to knit in wool.

    Thank you!
    That would be great! I just love seeing other people’s dolls and knits, and the little dolls are so sweet. I look forward to seeing your photos when you have a chance to put them on.

    Sorry, I drifted off. 🙂 Yes, I guess that’s a good point, seams can be the pits.

    They are pretty too, (love the colours) and I have made some similar for my little dolls. I will take & post some photos later.

    I quite like top down knitting for the dolls as it means there are not too many seams to sew which on a small doll can look bulky, but I guess we are all different. I know a lot of the French patterns are top down. There is a group on Ravelry that knit for Les Cheries which are a similar size to the Paola Reina dolls; you could try them for patterns maybe.

    And in this one I shortened the Gracie cardigan and did a few rows rib instead of garter stitch at the bottom. The Gracie cardigan is available here:

    The Gracie cardigan is another versatile pattern free from MDBF. It can easily be adapted in small ways to make a difference. In this one, I simply added ties to the top instead of a button.

    Thank you. I do sew for my dolls, but I commissioned this dress and a friend made her hairband.

    Yes, I have a few different patterns, but always on the lookout for English ones as they are easy to understand. The American patterns on there only confuse me, and I’m not fond of knitting from the top down either.

    Sandi, she is gorgeous. I love her outfit and I love her colouring and her freckles.

    I know what you mean about adjusting things. I don’t like it much, as it often involves a lot of undoing when it goes wrong. Have you tried Ravelry? There are quite a few patterns on there for the smaller dolls.

    It probably could, but if I had to do that, I might well make a pattern up as I go, I really hate adjusting things. 🙂

    Thank you Pamela. Yes, she’s my latest arrival from Paola Reina, here’s another photo of her:

    Thank you! I wonder if the pattern could be adapted for the smaller dolls. It is quite a simple pattern! I love your profile picture! I am guessing she is one of your dolls!
