Toy Extras: A Sweater for Dolly

Today we continue our Toy Extras Series, where we suggest free patterns already on the Knit Picks site, to make with the toys in our new books Cute, Cuter, Cutest: Toys to Love in 3 Sizes. Out of all the friends in the knit collection, the Human Beans are my favorite. They’re the kind of dolls I love – simple to make and easy to customize. I’d like to make a few different ones, with funny mouths and eyebrows in duplicate stitch, noses made with safety eyes, of different sizes, on each one. I’d make simple clothes for all of them, and I’d probably make my own patterns. For this cable sweater, however, I don’t have to!

There’s so many items that you never think you need until you have them, and can’t wait to use them again and again. One item I use constantly is the Soak Flatter Spray.

Free Patterns: Andean Treasure Edition!

“It’s like knitting a kitten!” – these are just one of the many comments you’ll find from crafters on Ravelry professing their love for Andean Treasure. And it is true! Andean Treasure is easily one of the softest yarns with a plush, squish-ability that you just can’t get enough of. Andean Treasure is 100% baby alpaca, which means it’s the softest and finest classification of alpaca fiber.

If you haven’t tried Andean Treasure yet, we’ve put together a handful of free patterns (including knit and crochet!) that just might tempt you to add a ball…or two…or three.
