Hannah Abbott is a not-super-well-developed character in the Harry Potter series, but she IS a Hufflepuff and thus seems worthy of inspiring this sweater. This sweater is empire style with a fitted bodice that fits Blythe perfectly. It has a two-color star pattern that is sweet without being overly fussy.
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!
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.
I recently got an etsy gift card for my birthday (thanks, Jessica!) and decided to spend it on some Blythe staples. Here’s a video!
Sometimes you want to knit with larger needles but still be able to make something for a small doll. In this case, it’s for Middie Blythe with easy-on-the-hands size 7 (4.5mm) needles using worsted weight yarn – not tiny at all! Yet you still get a very small sweater out of it that fits Middie perfectly.
It’s just getting to be big cozy sweater weather where I live and I am so ready. I’ve been relishing wearing leggings almost every day lately and I’m totally in an autumn state of mind. This sweater is just perfect for this time of year! Your Middie can be comfy cozy with a little knitting from you!
Professor Aurora Sinistra is one of the lesser-known members of faculty at Hogwarts. She appears a few times in passing but does not take a super active role. One of the things we know about her, though, is that she teaches astronomy in the tallest tower at Hogwarts, which led me to believe that she would be a fan of a big, cozy cardigan. It must get chilly on top of that tower!
This cardigan is so big and cozy that it might also be used as a coat! Especially if you use a looser-knitting yarn like the Classic Elite Yarns Bam Boo that I used to make the blue one pictured here.
More dreams of autumn happening here…
How cozy is this sweater?! SO COZY. I would love to wear this one myself. Add a pair of fun leggings and that might just be my autumn uniform. The bonus of this pattern is that, being for Blythe rather than a human, it only takes a matter of minutes to knit it up! The worsted weight yarn and larger needles means that it is a breeze and I am all about instant gratification.
Stripes! I have made many knit sweaters with horizontal stripes, but not many (any?) with vertical stripes. Realizing something like this is sort of like a challenge to me – haven’t done a thing yet? Time to figure out how to do it! It was not difficult and I actually liked working with two yarns alternating closely like this. For me, it’s easier to do this kind of close color switching than it is to do it over larger spans of stitches – I don’t tend to work too tightly, which I sometimes can with other stranded knitting.
Winter is coming…
But happily, there are no White Walkers to be found here, only a cute Blythe sweater pattern! In my quest to do more intarsia, I designed this snowflake pattern. It’s simple and seasonal and can be knit up in any color combo you choose. The pattern includes both long and short sleeves, so it’s really customizable to whatever look you like!
Did you have a sweater like this in the 80s? I know I had at least one and I remember it being super cozy. I have been wanting to practice my colorwork skills lately and I’ve been inspired to create Blythe patterns based on human garments. I think this one is a success!
