Crafty Book Review: Knits for Dolls, by Nicky Epstein

Knits for Dolls (1 of 1)-3

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.

About the Author

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now. Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.

    Fun stuff! Emma bought herself Saige a few months ago with her hard earned money, so now I suppose I should make some knitted winter stuff. They do have a few matching-ish outfits, but nothing knitted.

    Course the knitting will have to wait till it’s not 100 degrees outside.
