Lots to Love 10 Inch Doll Sweater Set



This was one of my favorite new patterns I tried last year. I just find myself smiling when I see pictures from both 2020 and 2021's version of the outfit. When I was trying to decide where to start this year, this project called to me.



This pattern is part of Darski's free Berenguer Baby Layette pattern you can find here.

I was sure I'd finished off my supply of this Herrschner's Worsted Yarn but when I went to look in my yarn supply I found a completely untouched skein. I have no idea how I still have an untoched skein but clearly it was meant to be and I will be using it to make outfits for the smaller dolls this year. While it is listed as a worsted 4 I find it to be more of a DK weight which seems to work well for these dolls.

Last year I left notes for this pattern which I thought would be clear enough but I was wrong. Some were not detailed enough. So I will leave myself directions again as I can see making this outfit again. The sweater requires an H hook to fit. The booties and the hat use a g hook. Last time I said I needed to follow the directions for the bonnet and read them carefully to make it work. Well once again I misread the directions so I'm going to note what I failed to understand twice now to help me for next time. In the second row of the bonnet you need to dc and fdc in the same stitch. Every time I've made this hat I've made them in separate stitches and the bonnet doesn't fit until you follow these directions.
