This simple lace top is a great summery choice, with a lacy skirt & eyelets at the waistline and edging the bodice. If you've never had experience knitting lace, this is a good first project. You will quickly recognize & even memorize the simple repeated pattern, which creates the "vine lace" design.
You can choose to finish the top with crocheted ties or shoulder straps, and for variety, weave satin ribbon through the eyelets of the top and finish with a bow.
The items may fit a variety of 7-8 and 11-12 inch dolls, but they are specifically fitted to Helen Kish's dolls like Riley and Bethany.
* Lightweight crochet cotton (US size 10). I used Caron's Grandma's Best & DMC Traditions. I have also used laceweight yarn, such as "Shadow" from knitpicks.com
* Knitting Needles sized 00000, 000 and 0 (1, 1.5 & 2 mm)
* yarn needle
* Crochet hook, US size 10 (around 1.15-1.5 mm)
* With size 000 needles in stockinette stitch, 23 stitches & 33-36 rows in a 2 x 2 inch (5.1 cm) square.
This purchase is for a KNITTING PATTERN, not the doll or clothing pictured. I also have a pattern available for Tyler Wentworth size dolls, "Light & Lacy-TW" if you want to make a matching mom/daughter set.
