FASHIONS—CONTEMPORARY OUTFITS TO KNIT FOR
recently learned that my great-niece Eloise received an
American Girl doll for her 7th birthday. When I was in Jo
Ann’s trying to find something to use my 50% off coupon
on, I saw this book which has 3 American Girl dolls on the
different hand-knit outfits. The cover says “Quick-knit
designs that today’s fashion-conscious girls will
love! “ The 8 outfits are very cute looking, and hopefully
easy enough for me. There is one with a cardigan, skirt,
and matching shoulder bag; another with a long winter coat,
scarf, mittens, and matching hat; one with a party-type
dress with ruffled hem; one with capris and a moebius scarf;
one with a swimsuit, hooded coverup, headband, and ankle
bracelet; one with pants and kimono belted top; a ballerina
outfit; and last a farmer-type overall and hat. They all
look very cute and appealing! Best of all, the book was
really reasonable at $9.95, and I got it for half off! If
any of you have American Girl dolls in your families, I
recommend this book even though I have not yet tried any
of the patterns.
