As doll clothes patterns go, this one is a bit more complex than others. The result is worth the extra time it takes to knit the different articles of clothing included in the pattern.
Two pairs of needles are required for this pattern: size 9 and 11. A 3.5mm crochet hook is also needed, equivalent to a size 00 steel or a size E-4 aluminum crochet hook. You will also need a small button, ten press studs and a row counter.
All the items in this collection are double-knit. A total of 150g of color A and 100g of color B is all it takes for this set, excluding the blanket.
Using A cast on 69 sts. Work 6 rows in garter st.
