Important Information Regarding Yarn & Hook Choice
I have tried very hard to make my clothing patterns as versatile as possible. In theory as long as
you use the same type of yarn e.g. acrylic, cotton etc., the same brand of yarn, the same weight of
yarn and the same hook size, the clothing should fit your dolls.
However, some people have commented that they have a tendency to stuff their dolls very, very
firmly (one person said ‘like a brick’) and a lot of people use cotton y arn too which doesn’t have
much give. If this is you, you may not be able to manipulate your dolls into the clothing as easily
as I can, as although I stuff my dolls firmly I don’t stuff them so firmly that I cannot pull and/or push
them into the clothing with ease. I also use acrylic yarn for my dolls and their clothing which has a
lot of stretch to it.
Therefore If you tend to stuff your dolls very firmly, so that that the dolls body has very little give or
use cotton yarn, it is highly recommended that you go up at least a hook size when making the
clothing within this pattern .
I have noted in the individual patterns when there is a good point at which to try the pieces on
before you work any further, so that you can rework what you have done so far wit h a different
sized hook if you need to.

Which yarns did I use for my doll and clothing?
Not a recommendation as such, it’s just because I get asked this a lot. We don’t have much
choice here in the UK yarn wise, Stylecraft Special DK is my abso lute favourite brand here though,
lovely to work with and reasonably priced
The dress is worked from the chest down in joined rounds, at the
end of each round join the la st st to the first with a sl st . The
straps are added afterwards.

Now is a good time to try the dress on for fit. If it’s too big, work
the above 6 rounds again using a smaller hook as appropriate, if
it’s too small, use a bigger hook as appropriate.
