AMERICAN GIRL DOLL Sock Hop Outfit
This is an easy pattern - no fancy schmancy stitches - mainly knit and purl stockinette stitches.
The skirt is knit in the round from the bottom up, and the sweater is knit in rows from the top down. Both are seamless! You choose how to embellish each. I used a poodle applique for one skirt, which I sewed on. I used a poodle template I found online for the other one and cut it out of felt. I added a beaded leash and a charm for the dog tag. I added a bow and charm on each sweater.
I love that the outfit makes it easy to dress the doll. Nothing goes over her head, the sleeves of the cardi are short and wide, and the skirt fits over her legs and hips to the waist.
I am perfectly okay with knitters selling my finished items. Please just give me credit for the pattern!
