Marie-Grace in France. Part 2. Paris. New cable shrug

I started knitting this cable shrug for Marie-Grace before the holiday, but didn’t have time to finish it on time, so I finished it while I was in England and on a Eurostar train to Paris. I used a pattern by Liese Brouwer of Doll Tag Clothing. However, I didn’t realize until I bought the pattern that it would use 3.25mm (US #3) knitting needles – far too large for me (I prefer much thinner ones). It was rather hard to knit with them. But anyway, I managed to finish it and am very pleased with the result (and my daughter, who had actually asked me to make it for her doll, went over the moon!). Now I think that, perhaps, using such large needles for large dolls does make sense – it would take much longer to knit a similar shrug with my favourite 1.5-2 mm needles!!

  1. Кофточка очень хороша! Мари-Грейс очень идет. Представляю, как дочка рада – Мари-Грейс у нее такая модница!

  2. Оленька, какая интересная кофточка и связана здорово!!!
    Наверное она здорово будет смотреться с платьем или сарафанчиком!

  3. Юля, спасибо большое! Дочка рада – нет слов! Ей еще и от бабушки, и от моей подруги по наряду на ее куклу досталось этим летом – Мари-Грейс просто звезда! 🙂

    Леночка, спасибо большое! Да, думаю, красиво будет. Пока у нас комплекты идут в сочетании с тем, что было – из купленного, но, возможно, скоро появятся и полностью домашние комплектики.

  4. Поздравляю Мари-Грейс с новым предметом гардероба)) И дизайн, и исполнение – на высшем уровне! Самое оно, чтобы покорять Европу))))
