My mother taught me to knit at about age 10.At 16 crochet dresses were the high fashion (remember the 60's anyone) so I taught my self to crochet and sold my designs in my mother's yarn shop.
Four children came along so I knitted, crocheted and sewed almost all their clothes and ones for their dolls too, even my son's Action Man got a rather fetching army sweater!
My children grew up, I started a career and didnt' take up crafting again until I retired a few years ago. After knitting a cardigan for my granddaughter I made her barbie the same design and discovered that I like to make small things such as doll clothes. I also love amigurami, making dozens of penquins, santas and snowmen last Christmas.
I hope you like my trendy designs for Barbie and her friends.
I couldn' t resist making something festive for Barbie at this time of year. The pattern is so easy. great for anyone new to knitting motifs.
And it matches the one I made for Teddy which is in my pattern store.
The sweater has raglan sleeves for a good fit and a large enough neck to fit over Barbies head without the need for fastenings.
Hope you enjoy knitting this sweater as much as I did
