Our Generation Halloween Sweater and Pants

When possible I love including holiday outfits in the doll donations.

It is even better when I find free patterns that help me save on the cost of doing so as the costs have only gone up recently so finding free stuff makes this work.

This Halloween Sweater pattern can be found here.You may want to browse around the blog while you are there as I've found several free patterns I'll be exploring over time as she is a creative designer.

I made this with the suggested F hook and I used orange worsted I had on hand.I've been trying to use up yarn where ever possible rather than adding to my stash.

I found this was a little big on the My Life doll but fit the Our Generation doll. I'd go with a lighter yarn for the My Life doll to see if it fit better. I'd also decrease the rows before the bottom trim if making it for the Our Generation doll again as it was a bit long.

That being said I have plans to make this sweater for the Our Generation doll again without the picture as a regular sweater. The fit is good and it was an easy project to add to the donation. While the Halloween theme drew me to the pattern I think I'd be more likely to make it again as a solid color sweater.

The pants are based on a Maggie's Crochet Abby, Allie and Annie pattern that I've made so many times I've kind of adapted it to making it without a pattern.
