Crafty Book Review: Knits for Dolls, by Nicky Epstein
Got some yarn leftover after your last knitting project?
Wondering if you should stuff it back in your stash for perhaps forever? Pass it on? Trash it?
Instead, how about you thrill your favorite little kid by using that stash to knit him or her the most awesome, clever, modern doll outfits ever?
Nicky Epstein’s Knits for Dolls contains instructions for knitting 25 outfits suitable for 18-inch dolls (Hello, American Girl!), including accessories like wrist cuffs, headbands, hats, purses, a blanket, and a stuffed bunny. And best of all, since dolls are small, you’ll likely find some stash yarn that will turn out to be just perfect for knitting into a layered ruffled skirt, skull-embellished sweater, or dress-up crown for a child’s beloved 18-inch doll.
