Especially if someone teaches you to knit your own clothes.

I found this pattern (& there are a couple more) on Lion Brand's website and couldn't help but bring my new friend to SnB last night. http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/ki-dollPoncho.html



You can print out the little yarn skein labels and 'idea book', the needles I made out of plastic q-tips (they recommend using japanese toothpicks). My 3yo daughter thinks it's awesome and wants more knit clothes for Barbie. There are a couple other patterns available in the 'Chicks with Sticks' line so we'll see.

So cute,

I made this same pattern for my 3 year old and she too loved it! If you want to make more Barbie knits I recommend Knits for Barbie by Nicky Epstien. You can get it at the library and the patterns are awesome. Anyway great job!

Me! That scarf reminds me of a Barbie "scarf" (I don't think the word poncho was in my vocabulary yet) I knit many many years ago, only your Barbie's is so much prettier than my Barbie's. What yarn did you use? I love the colourway.

It's very cute. Love it. I must not let my youngest daughter see the picture. She will have me knitting her Barbie clothes all of the time, otherwise. EEEEK!  Grin
Your "title" has now stuck the song in my head..."I'm a barbie girl, in a barbie woooOOOooorld!"

I used Berroco Fresco - mostly because I had one skein from a stash swap my SnB had done and when I went to look for patterns I found out it had been discontinued. I'm not sure of the name of the colorway, it wasn't given to me with a label. Sad It has about the same gauge as the recommended Lion Brand Incredible.

My life is like unto a bargain store
And I may have just what you're lookin' for
If you don't mind the fact that all the merchandise is used
