School pullover for Gotz Hannah dolls.


School pullover knitting pattern for 18 inch doll.

free knitting pattern


The sweater is a fairly loose fit. If you prefer a smaller size go down a needle size. Remember it needs to be large enough to fit over the doll head. 
To make this sweater you need to work the front, back and sleeves separately breaking yarn and leaving on a spare needle or yarn till all 4 pieces are ready. Then using a circular needle place pieces on needle starting at center front where the "V" neck starts. It is then worked in rows . 
To shorten or lengthen sleeves remove or add extra rows where there are no increases. Body length can be adgusted as you like. 

Notions:
50g Dk yarn.
Needles: US 3 /3.25 mm. (or those you need to obtain gauge)
Darning needle.
Stitch markers or waste yarn.

Gauge: 6sts x 7rows = 1 inch. In stockinette stitch

Doll Eye Swap!

Yesterday I did something I never thought I would ever do. I changed the eyes on my Paola Reina Las Amigas Abigail doll! 

Paola Reina doll

Yes that took some courage: eye swap!

Paola Reina doll

I was so scared of ruining the doll's eyes but as you can see she looks lovely! 


Las Amigas doll


I had found some doll eyes in a fairly local shop which were very cheap. A really strange thing to find there. Dolls aren't really a hobby around here. 

First I removed her head even if it wasn't necessary. I wanted to see what the sockets were like inside. 

Eye swap


Next using a sharp pair of scissors I carefully pulled the old eyes out without scratching the vinyl. Her eyelashes came off at the same time as they had actually been glued to the eyes and not the crease that they should have been glued to. I removed the dried on glue.

Las Amigas doll


I warmed the head with a hairdryer and carefully pushed the new eyes into place inserting first at the bottom and then at the top. No problem and no scratches. Be careful as it heats and softens really quickly.

Using a toothpick I put a thin line of white glue along the crease where her eyelashes are and reglued the eyelashes. They look far better than they did originally!

I warmed the vinyl at the neck when I put her head back on. 

Paola Reina doll

She has thoroughly recovered from her "operation" and is really happy with her new look! Lol!
