Knit Doll Blanket Patterns


Knitted doll blankets are a great gift for children and other doll owners. Doll sized projects are small so they are great for some instant gratification. Doll patterns are also good ways to try out a new knitting technique, or to make up a small sample that is doll-sized before creating a full, life-sized version. Many patterns say that you can use leftover yarn. You could knit a doll blanket from yarn leftover from a sweater project to create a matched set that would be a thoughtful gift.

A nice, checkered basket -type free pattern written by Jennifer Jackson can be found on her majorknitter site (see link at end of article.) This pattern uses worsted weight yarn, which is the most common thickness yarn available throughout the US. The size of the completed blanket is about 12 inches wide and fourteen inches long, making this a perfect blanket for 18 inch dolls, such as American Girl.

A pretty cabled doll blanket pattern is available on Littleblackduckblog (see link at end of article.) The 18 stitch pattern repeat done in double knitting weight yarn is a nice introduction to cable knit pieces. Suggestions are given by pattern author Victoria Peat for adapting the doll blanket into a larger blanket if desired.

Lace knitters will enjoy knitting the acorn lace doll blanket from Slate Falls Press (see link at end of article.) Using worsted weight yarn, the eight row lace pattern creates a 12 in by 17 in doll blanket. This pattern can also be enlarged with tips provided by the pattern author.

Do you like to knit for dolls? We would love to hear from you in the knitting forum!
