Basic knitting skills are all you require to knit the designs in this book. Doll collectors often have difficulty in choosing appropriate garments for their dolls. Many doll artists have neither the time nor the expertise to sew elaborate creations. If you can knit, and purl, why not try making an outfit from the patterns in this book? Most of the designs are from the nineteenth century. These treasured instructions, often in a fragile state, have been preserved in this book for future generations to enjoy. Some of the miniature garments reflect the styles worn by the children of the period. This book contains ninety-two patterns for your doll - ranging from elegant edgings, to a selection of knitted dresses, and bed linen. The collection of patterns include a knitted doll, created for this book, covers for your dolls' stands, a miniature circular tablecloth, and an exquisite baby's ensemble. There is also a selection of edgings, beadings, and braids. These patterns help with the finishing touch to your work, and eliminate the need for machine made lace, and trims. Knitting cotton is available, inexpensive, and durable, making cotton an ideal choice for your work. Knitting with fine thread and needles is not difficult, and the lace you make will last forever. Many of the colour plates show the dolls in unusual tableau situations, an exciting new way of doll presentation and display.
