American Girl Doll Shawl

21 November 2016

 
I’m so pleased that Sara G has agreed to share her photos and modifications to my Fan and Pansies Shawl pattern to make an American Girl doll sized Shawl.

600-both

600-shawl-open

From Sara:

I have used this pattern to make a shawl for my granddaughters’ American Girl dolls. You just need to work rows 1-16 (of http://stitcheryprojects.com/2013/08/21/fans-and-pansies-shawl/).

I would like to share the method I came up with to finish the neckline edge, which also includes a tie to keep the shawl in place. After the last row 16 of the shawl, mark center front point on each side with safety pin. Ch 1, sc around dc posts and in row ends. When you reach safety pin, make a ch long enough to tie (30 sts for the doll size), and sl st in the back hump of each chain to get back to the edge. Continue sc around neckline to the other center front pin and make another tie. Continue to corner. Ch 1 and reverse sc back, working around ties. Finish off. I learned the reverse sc technique to finish an edge in an afghan pattern I made. It can be found on you-tube also. Simply described, you work from left to right and sc in the st before the last st made. Makes a knob-like thing that finishes your edge.

Update: Added URL for base pattern after “work rows 1-16

Little Checks Wrap

3 April 2014

pinkwrap3

pinkwrap2

This is a quick to crochet wrap that is good for someone wheelchair bound. The little check pattern adds character without making the wrap too lacy.

The example is made in worsted weight acrylic yarn

Size: The sample is 18-½” from neck to edge. The bottom of each of the four panels is 26-½” wide.

Materials:

14.7 oz/937 yds worsted weight yarn

Size H (5mm) crochet hook

Abbreviations:

ch = chain

ch sp = chain space

dc = double crochet

shell = 2 dc, 1 ch, 2 dc in chain space indicated

Instructions:

There is also a tutorial video for this pattern.

Make all stitches in both loops.

Chain 131 and finish off. This will form the foundation and ties.

Row 1: Form a new slip knot. Skip 40 chains. Dc in each of the next 4 ch, 2 dc in next ch, dc in each of next 8 ch, (2 dc in next ch, dc in next ch, 2 dc in next ch, dc in each of next 8 ch) three times, 2 dc in next ch, dc in each of next 4 ch. (leave the remaining 40 ch)

Row 2: Ch 3, turn. Shell in 4th dc, ** (skip 2 dc, 2 dc in space between dc) five times, skip 2 dc, shell in next dc. Repeat from ** three more times, skip 2 dc, dc in last dc.

Row 3: Ch 3, turn. Shell in next shell, ** 2 dc between shell and 2 dc set, 2 dc between each 2 dc set across the panel, 2 dc between the last 2 dc set of the panel and the shell, shell in the shell. Repeat from ** for the other three panels, dc in the top of the turning chain.

Repeat row 3 until wrap is desired size, then finish off with the last row given below. The sample has 37 rows, including the last row.

Last Row: Ch 3, turn. Dc in 2nd and 3rd dc, 3 dc in ch-1 sp, (dc in each dc across to next ch-1 sp, 3 dc in ch-1 sp) four times, dc in each of last two dc, dc in turning chain. Finish off and weave in end.

The wrap can be made in a solid color or can be made with any number of color changes. The best way to make a color change is to finish all but the very last pull through of the two loops of the last stitch of a row. Cut yarn with a few inches of tail and join with new color next to stitch. Pull new color through last two loops. Weave in ends.

Optional larger neck opening:

Chain 147 and finish off. This will form the foundation and ties.

Row 1: Form a new slip knot. Skip 40 chains. Dc in each of the next 4 ch, 2 dc in next ch, dc in each of next 12 ch, (2 dc in next ch, dc in next ch, 2 dc in next ch, dc in each of next 12 ch) three times, 2 dc in next ch, dc in each of next 4 ch. (leave the remaining 40 ch)

Row 2: Ch 3, turn. Shell in 4th dc, ** (skip 2 dc, 2 dc in space between dc) seven times, skip 2 dc, shell in next dc. Repeat from ** three more times, skip 2 dc, dc in last dc.

Continue standard pattern.

Updates:
6/11/2017 – Added optional larger neck opening instructions.

Wrapped Stitches Baby Hat for Straight Needles

9 February 2014

This is a simple baby hat in several sizes. The wrapped stitches look more complicated than they are. I have included a photo tutorial on the technique.

This is the straight needle version of the pattern. For the in-the-round version, go here.

There is also a pattern available for a coordinating baby blanket.

Small preemie – 8″ circumference, 4″ high
Preemie – 10″ circumference, 5.5″ high
Newborn – 12″ circumference, 6″ high
6 month – 14″ circumference, 7″ high
12 month – 16″ circumference, 7.5″ high
Toddler – 18″ circumference, 8″ high

Gauge:
22 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches in stockinette

Materials:
0.5 to 1 oz (40 to 80 yards) of DK weight baby yarn
Size 6 (4 mm) needles
Yarn needle

Abbreviations:
k = knit
p = purl
k2tog = knit two together
ssk = slip one knitwise, slip one knitwise, insert left needle into front of both slipped stitches and knit.
w2s = wrap two stitches – with yarn in back, slip two stitches to right needle purlwise. Bring yarn to front and slip the same two stitches back to left needle purlwise. Bring yarn to back and slip same two stitches back to right needle purlwise. Bring yarn to front and slip same two stitches back to left needle purlwise. Bring yarn to back and knit each of the two stitches.

Repeat instructions between * across the row.
Ribbing (6 rows for preemie size, 8 rows for other sizes):
Row 1: * k2, p2 * k1
Row 2: p1 * k2, p2 *
Repeat these two rows until you have the size ribbing you want.

Row 3: k1 * w2s, k4 *
Row 4: p
Row 5: k
Row 6: p

Repeat these eight rows (end with an even row) until the hat measures the desired height for size including the ribbing:
Small preemie – 3″ high
Preemie – 4.25″ high
Newborn – 4.75″ high
6 month – 5.75″ high
12 month – 6.25″ high
