Lots to Love 10 Inch Sweater Set


Sometimes you make decisions without realizing that there is a longer term impact of that decision. I wanted to branch out this year and try working with some different kinds of dolls. Thus I've added the 8 and 10 inch Lots of Love dolls to the donation for the year without dropping the regular dolls I donate. While I began this addition with the idea of being more creative, I suspect there will be more families in need this year looking for help with Christmas gifts. Having purchased dolls early, I have a bigger supply than I've had in previous years. I wasn't thinking about this when I decided I wanted to try something new this year, but I'm pleased it has the potential to help.

This charming sweater set is a free pattern from Darski's Berenguer Baby Layette pattern you can find here.

This was made from Herrschner's Worsted Yarn which while listed as a 4 weight yearn is really more of a 3. I was thrilled with the prospect of getting rid of more yarn I have left over from previous projects. I needed an H hook to get the sweater to fit. The g hook was sufficient to make the hat fit the doll's head. I reduced stitches on the booties as mine were too large. I added little shorts to this set. There is a free romper pattern you can use if you want something for under the sweater. I plan on sending the romper as a separate set, so I wanted to be able to package this as a complete set.

I crochet, but I haven't tried doll clothes. I think that might be next on the agenda considering my great-granddaughter is 1 yr. old now & she'll soon be playing dolls. Yep, thanks for the idea. Take care and have a great day!
