Basic dress for Obitsu11 / Pukipuki


(scroll down for German pattern / Runterscrollen für deutsche Anleitung)

After all that knitting for dollies of the 1/4 and even 1/3 scale, I wanted to knit something tiny again for a change – it just knits up faster 😉 Basically, this dress is really quite similar to one of my Monster High patterns – but the smaller needles and thinner yarn make it fit my Obitsu11 (this doll has nearly the same measurements as the Pukipuki dolls 😉 )

“Lazy” Obitsu40 /MSD Short Sleeved Dress (kurzärmeliges Kleidchen für Faule) ;)


(Für die Deutsche Anleitung nach unten scrollen!)

On the weekend I decided to “recycle” basic patterns for my Obitsu 40 and 48 cm dolls 🙂

"Little Odo" in hand-knitted dress

I added an easy little cable in the front, but the basic construction is the same. The dress is “lazy” because this time, I did not scale up with thin yarn, but basically used nearly the same amount of stitches and thicker yarn (ok, not completely the same, but only 8×4 st in circumference = fast dress 😉 )

Elegant Evening Dress for Tonner Tyler / Elegantes Abendkleid für Tonner Tyler


Alas, I completely forget to boast about the nice black dress I made for my Tonner witch 😉

Black Dress at last

Though it looks complicated and the lace pattern surely was a pain to knit, the basic principle on this again was easy.  Top down raglan increase 😉 (I think it was 4×12 st in circumference + 2x 12 st for each sleeve, with fingering weight yarn on 2mm DPN) The sleeves are then put aside. I did not even knit any decrease for the waist, just some rows in garter stitch for the bodice. Increase for the skirt was done with kfb (2x; with one round knit in between) plus/minus enough stitches to get a number you can work a small arrowhead lace pattern with (in the round). Skirt and sleeves were knit not with entirely black yarn, but with black with a gold glimmer. The small arrowhead lace pattern is repeated in the short sleeves. (Yes, SHORT sleeves, because MAN DID I LEARN TO HATE THAT LACE PATTERN ^^”)

Jetzt muss ich doch endlich mal mit dem schwarzen Abendkleid meiner Tonner Hexe angeben 😉 Nachdem sie so lange in bunter Kleidung rumstehen musste. Auch wenn es auf den ersten Blick vielleicht kompliziert aussieht und das Lacemuster eine Qual war, ist das Prinzip des Kleides wieder unser einfaches “vom Kragen an mit Raglanzunahme”-Prinzip. (Ich glaube, es waren 4x 12 M im Umfang + 2×12 M je Ärmel, mit 4-fädiger Sockenwolle). Die Ärmel wurden stillgelegt, damit weiter runterstricken kann. Ich hab nicht einmal eine Abnahme für die Taillie gearbeitet, nur ein paar Runden kraus rechts (li/re Runden im Wechsel). Für den Rock wurden die Maschen 2x verdoppelt (eine Runde rechts dazwischen), plus minus “dreckiger” Zu- oder Abnahmen, um die Maschenzahl für das Lacemuster zu erreichen. Hier habe ich mit einem kleinen Arrowhead-Lacemuster gearbeitet. Der Rock und die Ärmel wurden nicht in ganz schwarz, sondern in schwarz mit Goldglitter gearbeitet. Das Lacemuster wird in den kurzen Ärmeln wiederholt. Kurze Ärmel, weil ich dieses Lacemuster am Ende wirklich gehasst habe und einfach fertig werden wollte 😉

T-Shirt Dress for Tonner and similar 16” fashion dolls


Thanks to a very reasonable priced offer from MelGDolls, I was able to add this lovely green witch (Tonner “Cyclone Cantata”) to my collection. Yes, the nude dolls are much more reasonably priced, therefore I forwent the lovely dress this doll normally wears and decided to knit sth. up. Yes, she will get a black dress (or several), but until these are finished, she will have to wear what is available, among other things this colourful T-Shirt Dress 😉

Basically, it is knitted very similarly to the basic top and skirt, but with some more stitches in circumference (4st, 4*11st instead of 4*10) so that it does not stretch as much over the bust area.

The colourway was a surprise for me, too, as this was made from my lovely “advent calender” gift skein 🙂

Have your eyes adjusted again after this onslaught of colour? Then, off to the patter we go!

“Hippie” Turtleneck Sweater Dress (for Monster High and Obitsu 23 cm)


Obistu Nano Haruka Head on a 23 cm SBH (boots: mimiwoo)

This little dress came from a remainder of sock yarn (4-ply fingering yarn). As most of my dollieh things do 😉

The “hippie” part more refers to the colourway of the yarn.

Originally, I just wanted a longer sweater, but then I was curious how the colour pattern would turn out on this small scale. It is always a delight for me to see how different the precoloured yarns turn out in dollieh dresses. (Yes, I am easily amused.)

You want yet another pattern featuring a raglan increase? Here we go: Continue reading

Yet another Monster High Dress ;)


And again we are going with the “Gothic Lolita”-inspired theme. I really have to find some new inspirations 😉

short-sleeved dress with underskirt

If you have knitted e.g. the short sleeved basic dress or the lacy summer dress, you will see that most of my patters are only variations of some basic 😉

This dress has a separate underskirt (because I wanted to start the dress from the top ^^”).

On to the pattern! Continue reading

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 😉

Azone Picco Neemo with petite fairy head

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 🙂
