I designed this sweater as a crop top perfect for layering or showing off a lovely skirt. It has short sleeves and is just the right length to hit Blythe just at the waist. It’s also quite easy to make!
This sweater has a wide rib and is super cozy. The pattern includes both long and short sleeves, so you can make it however you want it.
The Halloween Blythe Swap was a lot of fun again this year! My partner has now had the chance to post her photos of her received package, so I, in turn, was able to upload my video of what I sent to her.

Thanks to both my partners, Jane and Jenna, for such an awesome swap!
Petite Blythe, like Daisy pictured here, is a great doll for taking along around town or while traveling. She’s small and fits easily in a pocket or purse, and she’s much less likely to suffer damage to her face than a Middie or Neo Blythe. One thing I’ve noticed, though, is that her hair can get a bit static-y and disheveled, and having a hat on helps to keep that from happening. This hat is very easy to knit! It’s all in one piece and takes only a few minutes to complete.
Who doesn’t love a big, cozy cardigan? This one’s got cables and a lovely shawl collar. It’s perfect for layering to make your Blythe’s cool-season ensemble complete!
Isn’t this hat cute? It’s a version of a hat I made awhile back for Neo Blythe, but this time it’s for Middie. This is yet another thing I’ve knitted for Blythe that I might wear myself, so perhaps I’ll make a human version next.
This month I participated in a swap – as usual, for Blythe, but this time specifically for a 12×12″ quilt. This swap originated in an online group for Blythe sewing enthusiasts and I was super geeked to see it. I’ve been thinking of making a Blythe-sized quilt for some time and this was the perfect excuse!
My partner and I have swapped before so we kind of know each other’s tastes a bit, which made this so much fun. Here’s a video of me unwrapping the quilt she sent me (also includes pics of the one I sent to her).
When I go to a conference or other situation where I know I’m going to be sitting still and listening for a number of hours, I take a project that I don’t have to think much about. That way my hands are busy so I can ditch the ants in the pants and pay attention to what’s being said. Because I don’t want to pay much attention to what I’m knitting, I want a pattern than is easily memorized and, if possible, doesn’t have a right/wrong side and doesn’t involve repeats that need to be counted. I wrote this pattern to meet all of these wishes! It’s an openwork wrap and since it doesn’t need to be a particular length, all you need to do is memorize the one line of stitches and then work that line until the piece is as long as you want it to be. I also get a TON of compliments on this when I wear it (I’ve made a few and wear them a lot in the cooler months).
It’s not that easy to find clothes for Petite Blythe, and I’m always looking for separates that I can switch up, so I made this cute little wrap skirt pattern. It’s super easy and knits up in just a few minutes – make one in every color!
It’s mid-September and in my neck of the woods it’s getting to be sweater weather! I love a cozy cardigan – here’s one for Blythe with a big happy collar and some cables.
