Little Dress for Picco Neemo Dolls

While quite new to Obitsu dolls etc., I recently stumbled upon the Azone dolls. Though they do not have the great poseability of the Obitsus, their aethetics are superior (in my opinion at least ^^). It is hard to find original heads for these dolls (unless you want to buy “complete” sets which are very expensive…). Therefore, Parabox/Obitsu heads are the go-to 🙂

This litte gem is the Azone Picco Neemo body (M, ~14 cm without head). Originally I ordered the Parabox “neko” head for it, but I like it much better with the Parabox “petite fairy” head (proportions etc.). The wig does not fit perfectly, but I like the fluffy white 😉

This little dress is quite the easy knit. While I like the looks of these tiny dolls in clothes knitted with 1.5 or 1 mm needles and very thin yarn, fingering yarn on 2 mm needles also works very well  🙂 I really like this yarn and its lovely colourway (Lana Grossa meilenweit Soja, colour 118)

Cast on 20 st. Divide onto four double pointed needles 2mm (5 per needle).

Knit one round.

Purl one round.

Knit one round.

Begin the raglan increase: *k2, YO, k1, YO, k2* (repeat on each needle)

Knit one round (knit the YO purlwise) = 28 st

*k3, YO, k1, YO, k3* (repeat on each needle)

Knit one round (knit the YO purlwise) = 36 st

In the following round, cast off the stitches for the short sleeves: k5, BO7, k12, BO 7, k5

To close the round again, k one round, but k tog the last st before and first st after the BO = 20 st. in the round again

Knit along until you have reached the length you want for the bodice.

In the next round, for the skirt double each second st.

Knit one round.

Skirt pattern:

round 1: *YO, k2, slip YO over the two knit stitches* (repeat throughout the round)

round 2: knit

Repeat these rounds for the length you want the skirt to be.

For the bottom hem, I used the picot cast off: k1, kfb, turn, k3, turn, BO3, *kfb,turn, k3, turn, BO3, kfb* till the last st., bind off (or you can just bind off without the picot)

Edit: If you just want to cast off a straight hem, you can also cast off in purl stitch, which gives a nice effect 🙂
