Baby gets a new outfit for Easter

Happy Easter to all you bloggers in blogland.  I hope you and your families have a Holy, Joyful Day!

I finished the outfit.  After many tedious attempts  I am going to show it even though it is a little ragged around the edges. I am hoping you will see improvement over time.  I hope, lol...

It is very difficult to keep my stitches even on such small needles using such fine thread. I am sure it will come with practice. The hard part is the edges while knitting. Either I hold them too tight or too loose as I am afraid of losing them off the needle. (ha, that happened a lot and it is hard to pick them up).  I didn't have much problem with life size knitting.  It came to me like a duck takes to water. I will persevere.....
It looks better on the doll on the back side.
Here you can tell it is a wee bit big on the pants. Easy to take care of this as I will run a thread around the waist and tighten it up a bit.
Thank you to Christine of Holly Hock Cottage for explaining to me what a "yfwrd"  meant....

  4. Hi.....I like your first attempt, I have the pattern book myself, this lady uses very thin needles and very thin thread. It looks like your needles were too thick for the thread. I think you should first try to make something with a thicker thread and needles. Just keep going you are doing fine. I began with a 2 mm needle and crochet thread 30 until I was ready for thinner threads and needles.

  5. It came out really cute. You'll get it, I know you will! Happy Easter!

  6. Try knitting I to the back of the last stitch on every row and always knitting the first stitch of every row where possible⚓. That will make the edges neater:)

  7. Hello Lady Jane,
    It looks beautiful. The finished product on the doll looks perfect which is what counts!
    Greatw ork!
    Big hug,
