Petite Blythe Dress Pattern

I love the petite Blythes that Littlest Pet Shop put out. They have tilting heads and are just so tiny! My girls were stuck with their stock clothes, which were just ok, so I made them some dresses. I thought I'd share the pattern in case you are in the same boat. This dress fits both Takara and LPS petites. 

You may notice my little model in the yellow dress. She was my project last weekend and I had a blast working on her. She's been spray painted and given a wig I made from leftover alpaca locks. She started out as the London girl with pigtails so she had quite a transformation!

If you make a dress, I'd love to see it added to the pattern page on Ravelry! Click the link below to view the pattern. 




Petite Blythe Dress Pattern


Yarn: fingering weight
Needles: Size 0 (US), 2.0mm
Gauge: 12 sts = 1 inch in stockinette 

Yardage: This is perfect for scraps!

This dress is worked flat and then seamed halfway up the back. I used both kfb and m1L increases because I like they way they look in this instance. The m1L is a bit fiddly with this small of a needle so If you want to use a different invisible increase, feel free.

PM - place marker
kfb - knit front and back
m1L - make one left

CO 20 sts

R 1: knit
R 2: knit
R 3: p4, PM, p2, PM, p8, PM, p2, PM, p4
R 4: knit all, kfb before and after each marker
R 5: purl
R 6: knit all, kfb before and after each marker
R 7: purl
R 8: k8, bind off 5, k12, bind off 5, k8 (you can remove the markers on this row)

R 13: purl
R 14: *k5, m1L*
R 15: purl

Repeat rows 15 and 16 until desired length ending on a knit row. Knit one more row and bind off. Sew up back halfway and finish with a snap at the top.
