Lulu Hat for Blythe

Looking for a sleek hat for Blythe? This one will fit the bill! It’s designed with negative ease, meaning that it is slightly smaller than Blythe’s head until you stretch it just a little bit. Then it fits with perfection, offering a lovely snug fit. If you have a Blythe with shorter hair and want something to hold it in place after doing a hair treatment (so it will dry just as you wish), this will work very well! It’s also just super cute for any Blythe. Very simple to make with only two ends to weave in – no seaming!

Sandy’s the name, if you please

Sandy Dress for Blythe

Is your Blythe a little bit old-fashioned? Does she prefer the classic looks? This sweater dress is inspired by her aesthetic! Like almost all my patterns, it is knit all in one piece, the body flat and the sleeves in the round. There’s no seaming at all! You just weave in ends, sew on a snap in the back, and you’re done. It’s got a high neck that fits Blythe perfectly and a cabled bodice, which is ever-so-slightly high-waisted. Then there’s a ribbed waistline and an A-line skirt, giving the dress a time-honored look that just might be perfect with a petticoat underneath or a pair of high boots.

to ruffle or not to ruffle?

You have the choice when you make this skirt. It knits the same no matter which style you choose, but the way you block it dictates the result.

Flared Skirt for Blythe

If you block the hem flat, it will give you a smooth, flared look. If you block it lightly or not at all, it will remain ruffled. It’s up to you!

knit sweater/skirt set

The way I designed this skirt, it uses two colors of yarn for a nice contrast at the waist and hem, but you could make it all one color, or do stripes or go wherever your imagination takes you.

It’s waiting for you on Etsy, LoveKnitting, Ravelry, and Craftsy.

FO Friday: Really Rose

It’s so cold out right now that the thought of wearing a three-quarter sleeve cardigan seems ridiculous, but if you’re Blythe, you really don’t have to worry about proper layers.

Rose Sweater for Blythe

The Rose Sweater for Blythe works well for variegated or solid yarn colorways. It has one buttonhole at the front top closure, so you can feature an adorbs tiny button that complements your yarn.

Depending on the yarn you use, you can get a slightly different look to this sweater. The pink version is an alpaca/silk blend and has a little more drape than the yellow version, which is made with a merino/silk blend. You could also go up a needle size for an even looser knit with more drape.

This sweater can also be worn reverse-cardigan style for a jumper-style sweater look. I like flexibility in my Blythe clothing, and the option to wear an item two ways is a big bonus for me, so I try to design it into my patterns whenever I can.
