Rina's Dress and Coat by Coats & Clark

Rina's Dress and Coat

January 1964
Thread ?
5 stitches and 7 rows = 1 inch
in Stockinette
US 6 - 4.0 mm
11" fashion doll

Thread: Use either a triple strand of Knit-Cro-Sheen or single strand of Speed-Cro-Sheen.

The pattern calls for one ball each of two different colors, but keep in mind that, at the time, the balls contained more yardage than they do today.

Additional Materials: 3 small snaps, round elastic

The “dress” is actually a top and skirt.

The skirt has elastic run through the stitches at the waist; the top closes with snaps; the coat is not intended to be fastened.

The top and coat are knit top-down, the skirt is knit bottom-up.

The pattern says this is for an 11-inch doll, but it does fit an 11.5” Barbie-type doll with the 1960s figure: 5.5”/3.125”/5”. Check the fit as you go for other varieties of doll.
