Patsy’s New Fall Outfit

Tonner’s Patsy doll has a new sweater and skirt set that she wants to model for you.  I tried something different this time and made her a gathered skirt with an a-line sweater.  This corduroy print is so pretty with so many different fall colors.

I picked out seven colors of wool for the sweater.  Who could pick just one???  Yes, the weaving in of the ends was a lot of work, but well worth the effort, don’t you think?  I thoughtfully arranged the stripes to look their best and got to repeat the first three colors once more.  The sleeves and body came out the perfect length (and exactly the same!) which made me very happy.  I felt like I had good knitting karma (or the knitting gods) with this one.
