Lottie Doll Sweater Dress Pattern (knit flat)

Free Knitting Pattern for Lottie Doll Sweater Dress from In Our Pond
Dragonfly (age 6) and I have been enjoying our Lottie doll quite a bit since Christmas.  She's just the right size for the heirloom dollhouse we have (the one in the background).  Dragonfly has lots of crafting ideas and has a large list of things for me to create with and for her.


This dress is a modification of the free sweater ornament from Greens and Jeans.  Her sweater was too large for the Lottie dolls (but may fit a Barbie- I haven't tested it) so I shrunk it a bit.  I also added the skirt.  It's still slightly too large, but looks pretty cute in person.

Garter Stitch the 4-6 last rows and cast off to finish.




SLEEVES

Pick up the 9 stitches from the cable needle and another 3 from the underarm.  Begin rounds under the arm.  Knit in the round until the sleeve reaches the desired length.  Knit 4 rows (2 bumps) of garter stitch (knit one row, purl the next) and cast off.  Repeat for second sleeve.

Weave in ends and wet block with warm water.  Add buttons to the back, being mindful to line up the buttonholes.

Finished!
