Here are the instructions for what I did for the long sleeve lacy version of the Poppy dress pattern available free here
I put the sleeves on waste yarn and knitted them in the round after the body, but you could knit them flat too, but you would have to do that before you knit the body. I knitted 30 rows for the sleeves then 3 rows garter stitch and cast off purlwise.
I increased to 121 stitches for the body after working a couple of rows in stocking stitch. I worked the lace pattern below which I found on the internet. However I ended up not using the ssk but k2tog through back of loop as it was quicker.
After the lace I worked 3 rows garter stitch and cast off purlwise.
Row 1: k1, *k1, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k3, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2, rep from * to last 8 sts then; k1, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2
Row 2 and all even rows: Purl all
Row 3: k1, * k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, k1, rep from * to last 8 sts then; k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, k1
Row 5: k2tog, * yo, k5, yo, k3tog, yo, k5, yo, k3tog, rep from * to last 7 sts then; yo, k5, yo, ssk
Row 7: k1, * yo, ssk, k3, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k3, k2tog, yo, k1, rep from * to last 8 sts then; yo, ssk, k3, k2tog, yo, k1
Row 9: k1, * k1, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k2, rep from * to last 8 sts then; k1, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k2
Row 11: k1, * k2, yo, k3tog, yo, k5, yo, k3tog, yo, k3, rep from * to last 8 sts then; k2, yo, k3tog, yo, k3
Row 12: Purl
12 rows make up pattern
Number of stitches for this pattern is multiples of 16 + 9

Pattern Alana by Genniewren Designs. The pattern worked well but I had trouble understanding some of the instructions. Really happy with it in the end though. I have posted photos on the knitting topic if you want to leave comments there 🙂Mon 21st August 2017 at 11:27 am #13559
I used the Poppy dress pattern for this knit, but I added 4 stitches to the body and then worked the following pattern:
Row 1 yf, k3, slip 1, k2tog, psso, k3, yf, k1
Row 2 purl
Row 3 repeat row 1
Row 4 knit
I also worked a k1 stitch at either end of the row. I used Palette Clarity. yf = yarn forward!
Reminder no comments here – but welcome on the MDBF pattern thread.

The Gracie Cardigan fit Baby Ann Perfectly. I lengthened the sleeves to cover her cloth arms, as she only has vinyl hands. I did it by knitting 12 rounds of sleeve from the division before working 5 rounds of garter st starting with P and BO in K.Thu 27th July 2017 at 2:46 pm #11933
Ball Game set pattern by Jacknitss. I went up a needle size on the ribs as my doll is chubby! It is in DK and took 34g. More photos and comments in the knitting thread. Just the basics here and no comments on this thread for easy reference!Sun 16th July 2017 at 7:30 am #11599
Dress pattern is a “Time to Celebrate” for 18″ dolls by Little Miss Muffet with slight size adjustments, available from Pixie Faire. Fabrics are Liberty and gauze with lace trim.
Cardi is a basic free Jacknitss pattern, to which I added my own stitch pattern and extra button holes. It’s knitted in Palette Haze Heather.Sat 15th July 2017 at 10:51 pm #11588
Free Trendy T-shirt Pattern for Journey Girls from Pixie Faire. The only alteration was to add 1/2 inch to the bottom of the pattern. I used a premade T-shirt for fabric and placed the cut line on the finshed hem. Happy Kidz are taller than Journey Girls. A T-shirt Variation pack is also available for sale. Lilli is wearing the second go at the T-shirt and I think it looks better.
Leggings, in their final version, are drafted by me.Fri 14th July 2017 at 5:17 am #11520
I thought I should post a photo for my steampunk costume, but only one photo, so I picked the one below.
The skirt, corset, snood and mitts were improvised.
The goggles pattern was here.
The knitting patterns I used were Deb Denair’s Braemar (a jacket, not in photo) and Three Steps. The hiking boots were made by The Queen’s Treasures. I don’t remember where I bought them, but you can Google them and perhaps find a local source.
Mandy is showing that girls can be anything they want to be, even chemists and engineers. More photos are on my Ravelry page for the project. The glasses (and Mandy) came from MDBF.
