One of the benefits of making doll clothes for 11 to 11 1/2 inch dolls is that the yarn requirements are so little that you may never have to buy yarn for these. Of course, if you are like me, as new yarns arrive at my local yarn shoppe, I design and create clothes around the yarns. Dye colors, textures, yarn weights all play a part in the design of an article of clothing.

Have fun experimenting with various textured yarns. Use your creativity when choosing colors. Mix some of the patterns here with crocheted pieces.

Below you will find links to pages containing the instructions.

Enjoy browsing,

choose a pattern,

pick up your needles,

and let's get started!

Alpaca dress and shrug.  Pure cashmere is one of the few yarns that is softer than this!  Does your fashion doll deserve this elegant outfit?

Three piece silk ensemble: a triangular skirt hem, a matching shell, and a ruffled striped vest!

This is a very easy pattern.  Make a sleeveless top, or add more rows in the middle, and your 11 1/2 inch doll will have a dress!  Accessorize with a jacket or stole.

The top for this silk outfit is similar to the top to the left.  The pattern is a little more advanced, because it incorporates two cables down the front of the top.

The skirt is easy to knit, and has a hem to give a couture look!

This sleeveless, striped shell, uses one less strand of yarn than the crocheted jacket and skirt.  This eliminates bulk.  If you would like to learn how to knit, this is a good site!







Barbie Knit Accessories

I designed this hat so that the fashion doll's pony tail could easily hang out.


The clutch closure is a petite pearl, but you could use a small button, or make a yarn knot from matching yarn or a coordinating color of yarn.

These are easy to make, so follow these instructions and have fun!







If you have an American Girl doll, you will find free patterns to knit . There are instructions for clothes for all seasons, from a bathing suit with lace at the top and sandals to match, to a Merino wool coat with coordinated cable ribbed hat and a shoulder bag. An A-line dress to be worn underneath completes this ensemble.

Many patterns are geared towards beginners. Yarn requirements for American Girl 18 inch dolls are quite a bit more that the clothes for 11 inch dolls. Most simple dresses or sweaters will require at least 50 grams of sport weight yarn.
