How to knitting sweater for blythe doll ?

Knitting a sweater for a Blythe doll can be a fun and rewarding project. Here's a basic guide to get you started:

Materials Needed:

  1. Yarn: Choose a yarn that is suitable for the size of your Blythe doll and the desired thickness of the sweater. You can use any color or type of yarn you prefer.
  2. Knitting Needles: Select knitting needles that match the weight of your yarn. For Blythe doll clothes, small needles like US size 1 or 2 (2.25mm or 2.75mm) are commonly used.
  3. Scissors
  4. Yarn Needle: This will be used for sewing seams and weaving in ends.
  5. Measuring Tape


  1. Measure your doll: Start by measuring your Blythe doll. You'll need measurements for the chest circumference, arm length, torso length, and desired sweater length.

  2. Choose a pattern: You can find many free knitting patterns for Blythe doll sweaters online. Choose one that matches your skill level and the style you want.

  3. Gauge swatch: Knit a gauge swatch using your chosen yarn and needles to ensure that your sweater will be the right size. This involves knitting a small square (usually 4x4 inches) and measuring the number of stitches and rows per inch.

  4. Cast on: Once you have your gauge, cast on the required number of stitches for the sweater front or back, depending on the pattern.

  5. Knit the body: Follow the pattern instructions to knit the body of the sweater. This may involve knitting in stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl one row) or another stitch pattern.

  6. Shape the neckline: If the pattern calls for it, you may need to shape the neckline by binding off stitches at the center and then decreasing on either side to create a V-neck or scoop neck.

  7. Knit the sleeves: After completing the body, pick up stitches around the armholes to knit the sleeves. Follow the pattern instructions for sleeve length and shaping.

  8. Finish: Once you've completed the knitting, bind off all stitches and weave in any loose ends. Use the yarn needle to sew the side and sleeve seams together.

  9. Add embellishments: If desired, you can personalize your sweater by adding buttons, embroidery, or other embellishments.

  10. Try it on your doll: Once your sweater is finished, try it on your Blythe doll to ensure it fits correctly. Make any adjustments as needed.
