Easy to knit , knit flat, beginning at the neck with k1, p1 ribbing. I prefer to use circular needles knitting back & forth as with straight needles, BUT it's much easier to handle the project with circulars.
Gauge: 20 sts & 28 rows = 4" on size 4 needle
I have been knitting & crocheting about 35yrs, sewing, beading, crafting as well. I fell in love with doll clothes after a friend sent me an 18 inch doll, so I began creating patterns for them and other doll sizes soon followed.
