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 😉 )
(Caipi’s faceup was done by the talented Shinya :))
This is again a fairly standard sweater, no waist shaping or anything, but this time, with cables 🙂 Top-down raglan, seamless. MSD size (my lovely little model is an Obitsu 40 cm body with the “Kanna” head).
The “real” cables are in the front (middle) and on the sleeves. The smaller cables are just mock cables with crossed stitches.
This pattern has not yet been test knitted! Therefore, proceed with care and please let me know if you encounter any discrepancies! (… be my guinnea pigs 😉 )
Please refer to the measurement chart for Obitsus; my model is an Obitsu 40, and e.g. for Minifee, the sweater is rather on the “comfy” side (i.e. bit too wide)
The time sharing Obitsu body is lucky enough to receive many clothes, as it is like knitting for another doll once you pop another head on 😉
These jumpers are standard “topdown raglan” sweaters, knit in the round. The cable is a mock cable, basically you knit k2p2 ribbing and cross the knit stitches in every 4-6ths row (knitting the second stitch first, but leaving it on the left hand needle, then knitting the first stitch and slipping these both stitches to the right hand needle). If you knit flat, do that in a right side row!
Der Teilzeit-Obitsu-Körper bekommt derzeit die meisten Klamotten, weil es sich anfühlt, als würde man immer für eine neue Puppe stricken, wenn man einfach den Kopf wechselt 😉
Dieses Zopfmuster ist ein “falsches” Zopfmuster, da die Maschen quasi nur verkreuzt abgestrickt werden. Man strickt 2re2li Rippenmuster und in jeder 4.-6. Reihe wird bei den zwei rechten Maschen jeweils zuerst die 2. Masche auf der linken Nadel gestrickt, aber auf der Nadel belassen, dann die erste, und dann beide auf die rechte Nadel gehoben. Wenn man nicht in Runden strickt, muss dies in einer rechten (=Vorderseiten-)Reihe geschehen!

I am trying to knit some nice thingies up for a friend whose baby is due in July. After much searching, I finally found the PERFECT pattern for baby booties. Knit in the round, without having to break and rejoin the yarn multiple times! 🙂
And after some tweaking, also great for booties for ‘bitsus 😉 (40-60 cm bodies, feet size: 6-6.3 cm length and 2-2.2 cm in width, so they should also fit all BJD with similar sized feet)
I finally got around to giving the two other heads I ordered with the Obitsu48 a faceup 🙂
(… meanwhile I got so used to “Little Odo” that this head will most likely stay blank ^^) Continue reading
There once was this dress (free pattern) that was knitted in anticipation of my first Tonner Tyler – and turned out way too wide for her.
However, I was happy to find that it fits great for the larger Obitsu lot! 🙂
Here it is on my Obitsu 60, admittedly a bit short as it was knit for MSD/16” size, but you can see the fit.

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