21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: A Clap for the Coldest Girl on: December 06, 2005 07:55:09 AM
Oooh, it looks so cozy! I knitted mine out of silk and I'm kind of regretting it, now that it's getting so chilly outside. Yours looks perfect for outerwear though!

I love it! It's pink and pretty but not too prissy. And as the parent of a little girl, I can attest that the little one will get loads of wear out of it this time of the year.

You know, I looked at the pattern again (I'm doing another Joan Jett style to resemble a friend) and I think there is a mistake in the arm for the Henry doll. There's gotta be more than those two rows of black and you'd think you'd have to decrease more before binding off, no? I've found these doll patterns pretty muddy throughout -- you may have to experiment a bit before completing the finished arm. At least the weirdness lies at the end of the arm, not the beginning, so you can always unravel a few rows if it looks wrong.

Good luck!

I'm making a bunch of these dolls right now for Xmas presents and it's definitely Every Other Row. I haven't done the Henry doll specifically, but I think the two rows of black should also be okay once you attach the arms to the body. You could also just switch to black earlier if you want more sleeve.

I've been working on the rockstar dolls personalized to resemble my friends (for Xmas gifts). I only knit in the evening and I've managed to crank out a doll a week, knitting about 2 hours a day. And that's with the trial and error of tweaking the pattern so that they look like my friends.

As for mattress stitching, I've been knitting for a couple of years and have always been horrible at it, but since the dolls do require a fair bit of seaming, they've actually helped me beef up my chops. I too learned how to do it from SNB, so go back to Debbie's instructions and try again. My one word of advice is this: don't try to mattress at the very edge of your fabric. Go in to the second stitch and use the ladder (as explained in SNB) as the place that you stick your needle under. It's easier to find that ladder if you go a stitch in, and once you start getting it right, when you give the yarn a tug to tighten up the stitches, that seam should dissapear.

Good luck. You can check out my progress on my dolls at http://www.elizaboothy.blogspot.com

I've made two now -- a tiny one while I was pregnant and another this fall to fit my now 9 month old daughter. I love this pattern! It knits up nice and quick, is easily adjusted and looks cute as a button. Only problem now is that my little Ruby has decided she hates natural fibres and rips it off her head the second she gets in the stroller. I've had to pick it out of several puddles already this season.
