The traditional Breton Stripe top is a wardrobe staple, made popular by Coco Chanel and Pablo Picasso. Why shouldn't your doll also own a version of this enduring classic? Her traditional top features a hook and loop tape (or buttoned) closure up the back for easy dressing, and minimal shaping for easy knitting. Pattern features: - Detailed instructions in PDF format, written in English. - Knitting charts included for visual knitters (or if English is not a first language). - Adjustments for left-handed knitting. - Higher resolution photos, charts and illustrations to allow zooming without loss of detail. - Choice of hook and loop (Velcro(r)) or buttoned back closure.

Knit, Sew, Bake, Repeat. That's me! I'm a former Design Studio Supervisor for a yarn company. The techniques I use are generally traditional, but I admit I do like to press for the unusual once in a while.
