Awesome Arabella

Arabella Hat for Blythe

Got some bits of worsted weight yarn hanging around and nothing to do with such small amounts? Grab a set of size 7 (4.5mm) double-pointed needles and get to work, because you’ll soon have a sweet striped hat for Blythe (seriously, this hat will take you so little time to knit that you will hardly believe it).

Avail yourself of this pattern at LoveKnitting, Craftsy, Ravelry, and Etsy.

Beguiling Bertha for Blythe

Bertha Hat for Blythe

Stripes are awesome, and I think they work really well on Blythe. This hat is a great way to show off some stripes! It’s a generously sized toque, so it will stay on well even if your Blythe has big hair (you know how some hats will sort of try to spring off the top of Blythe’s head? This one won’t do that, even on Ash, my mohair reroot whose locks are boisterous). Add a bobble if you wish, or leave it as a plain cap.

Pretty Primrose

Primrose Romper for Blythe

I’ve been wanting to create more garments for Blythe using mohair/silk yarn, and I’ve been wanting to make up a pattern for a romper, so here’s both of those things in one!

This romper features a shaped bodice, cap sleeves, and puffy shorts. It is worked flat and in the round on size 2 (2.75mm) double-pointed needles using one color of lace weight mohair/silk yarn. It is also seamless! It’s knit top down and all in one piece. There is no finishing beyond weaving in the ends. It’s super quick and easy!

Available on Ravelry, Etsy, Craftsy, and LoveKnitting.

Blythe window shopping

I got some great responses to my last post about Blythe and finding dolls that are not White – thank you to everyone who responded! One awesome person, Deb, let me know that there’s another site kind of like ebay, Ali Express. I’ve heard of the site, but I didn’t realize how many Blythes are available there! Most seem to be factory/TBL/fakes, but as I mentioned in my last post about this, I am willing to make that compromise in order to find what I’m looking for, at least once. Once I get one, we’ll see how I feel about it. For now I’ve been window shopping online, and have found a few cuties!

I also don’t have any Blythes with non-stock bodies at this point, so I’m a bit intrigued by those that have jointed bodies.
