My very first doll cardigan

I have just found some more old photographs which I have never shown! This was the very first cardigan I knitted as an adult. That was 8 years ago and I knitted it for my daughter’s first doll – Emma by Carpatina. It was 3 years before I started collecting dolls myself! These photos were taken a few years after I made the cardi. It also fits Magic Attic and Gotz dolls. Here it is shown on my Rebecca (Heather by Magic Attic) and further down on my daughter’s Anastasia (Emma by Carpatina). The jeans jumper on Rebecca is from EuroGirls collection.

Details. This was the first time I attempted this kind of embroidery and I haven’t done it ever since (though I should).

The same cardigan on a Carpatina doll for whom it was knitted in the first place (the red dress was made by mum).

    1. Лара, спасибо большое!! Сама уже удивляюсь, как я тогда легко и быстро эти розочки вышила!!

  1. I truly enjoy your blog. Your craftsmanship is amazing and inspiring! I have learned about dolls and other things ( Singapore, Outlander& etc.). For Christmas I received a Tonner 18″ Imagination doll. This had led me to thinking about finding a Magic Attic doll. Your posting was very timely for me

    1. Thank you so much, Shirley!! I am so happy you are enjoying my blog! Oh yes, Magic Attic dolls are lovely. I’ve just got Alison. I will show her soon. She is a beauty!

    1. Аня, спасибо большое! Самое интересное, чтобы мне такое же вышить снова, придется начинать с самого начала – я совсем не помню, как я вышивала!!
