Pattern Description:

This is a cute cover up for any young lady's doll to wear to gymnastics or ballet practice. The pattern includes the little bolero sweater, drawstring shorts and I-cord drawstring.

Sock yarn, once blocked, will not curl up as acrylic yarn does, so it is recommended for this set so the shorts edges do not curl.

The sweater is knit back and front together and the sleeves are then added to each side before the side seams are sewn. The shorts are knit in the round top down and then divided for the legs, which are knitted in rows. The yarn in this project is doubled throughout except for the I-cord.


Stockinette st - 5.33 sts and 7 rows = 1 inch


  • Super fine (#1 wt) sock yarn - 300 yds
  • U.S. Size 0 (2mm) straight, dpns, 16-in. circular needles

Suggested yarn:

300 yards of Fingering weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Deborah Norville Sock
