Cardigan and underwear set for Inky

I was sent some really nice yarn to knit a cardigan for Inky last fall. I had been writing a  raglan sleeve cardigan pattern for dolls at the time so it worked out well. This is the finished result, I just happened to have the perfect colored tiny buttons.

Davina is modeling today.

This is a little underwear set. I was sent three pair of new Gymboree unders to make into a raglan sleeve boyshorts set. Voila! The back of the shirt closes with snaps. I used a scrap from an outgrown Gymboree shirt from my kids for the white on the shirt to make up the full front piece. The unders just weren't big enough to get lots of large pieces out of. Upcycling can be like a puzzle. Trying to get the most mileage out of whatever shapes are available, and then make it look like it's designed that way. The back of the shirt is solid pink. Davina had been sitting in this set for a couple days so the fronts of the boyshorts are creased, oops!

Thanks for looking!

GREAT Job! LOVE the sweater, I've been looking for a cardi pattern in doll size, are you selling yours?(pattern). The pajamas are cute too, that shirt looks complicated, I think it would give me fits, very nice!

Thanks! I don't currently have plans to sell my patterns, but if you check you should be able to find a bitty baby pattern that you can adjust to fit 18" dolls. I made this cardi from sock weight yarn.
