Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


The overalls are so lovely! Hmmm, I wonder if any of my Grandgirls have dolls this size???

Some people have too much free time

But I am not one of them. I use my time to see to it that little naked dolls have clothes. Here's another garment for those darling 5" dolls (that my niece swears do evil things at night when we're asleep)

Doesn't he have that Huck Finn look?

Here's the pattern - written in my favorite pithy manner - a little more succinct than my muse EZ but not much.

Knit in the round using your favorite circular technique and distributing the stitches in whatever way you like best.

With a #3 cotton or substantial sock yarn and a size 3 needle(s)

cast on 28 stitches.
Join, being careful not to twist This join will be the center back.
Knit one round
in next round, P2, YO, P2tog, P6, P2tog, YO, P4,YO, P2tog, P6, P2tog, YO, P2
K one round
P one round
K one round, increasing 8 stitches evenly distributed
K 12 more rounds
K 18 stitches put remaining stitches on a holder – with such a small project, putting these stitches on a loop of yarn is the best option, but feel free to use the holder of your choice
Join those stitches, pulling the working yarn as tight as you can and knit 5 rounds on 18 stitches
P one round
K one round
Bind off in purl.snip yarn
Pick up 18 reserved stitches. With new yarn knit 18 stitches and join.
K 4 more rounds
P one round
K one round
Bind off in purl.
Use the tail of the joined yarn to sew up the gap between legs.
Weave in all ends

Make 3 stitch i-cord about 28 stitches long. Sew a knot in both ends using about 6 stitches for each knot. Strap will be about 14 stitches long. Measure against the doll to be sure.
Use knots as buttons to go into the little one stitch YO buttonholes, crisscrossing the straps in back.
