Complete wardrobe for American Girl Dolls
Collar: Join shoulder seams. Not much to report today in the way of news, but I did finally finish a second color variant for the 11th Doctor Matt Smith from Doctor Who. Exhibit A:. This alternated with a similar blue bow tie, blue shirt version throughout series 5.
Knitting for Dolls
Strangely, while the red bow tie became THE symbol for the 11th Doctor amongst fans, the toy companies seem to have latched on to the blue outfit for a lot of their products, like the Character Building micro figures…. Here is the completed product:. And a link to the Ravelry page is here! As I said before, the blue and red shirts with the tweed are two out of five iconic costumes the 11th Doctor wore during his run. And yes, Character Building did this one too! But in a move that I think is frankly an odd oversight, they seem to have forgotten his bow tie? As always, will post when the project actually gets off the ground!
If you know how to knit and purl on straight needles, you can do this!! I usually use red heart super saver yarns or the loops and threads impeccable brand. This will be used later to wrap the bow tie into shape and sew it into place. This is a good skill to learn in general, useful when you make scarves if you want to turn your scarf into an infinity scarf.
No one will see it! At this point you should have a little ring.

Try to keep it centered so your bow tie is even! Here I am sewing the bow tie in the place of honor! I go back and forth along the wrong side, stitching it completely down. Otherwise, if you just secure it from the middle and not the wings of the bow it pops off a little bit too much… this also helps to keep it straight. Again, please excuse my laundry. Hey guys! This was my first non Doctor Who doll, and the first time I needed to do curly hair. And here is the Ravelry link if you want to know the materials.
He looks like a creepy blank-faced conjoined twin thing. Once the plastic eyes were in and the smile was sewed on, I was able to start exploring hair options. At this point I started making his scarf with a simple garter stitch. That 11th Doctor next to him was actually the second I made, intended for my friend Kim for Christmas. For non-knitters, blocking is when you soak your knit piece in water for a bit, then pin it into the shape you want, and let it dry. This combats the problem of curling, which happens a lot in that stockinette stitch I use for everything.

I finished the scarf and sewed together the coat. Also added some buttons for interest and to actually make it look like outerwear. During this process it felt less like knitting and more like sculpting a statue. That means that I not only sewed the hair in at the roots, but I also sewed in the tips, and took a few stitches at varying degrees along the lengths of the curls to keep them in perfect place.
Now he can be thrown around, punched in the head, snuggled with and rolled over on, and his hair will still be the same as the day I made him. Sweet dreams.
