Miniature Crocheting and Knitting for Dollhouses (Dover Knitting) (Paperback)
With the right needles, hooks, yarns, and this book, you can create dozens of exquisite items for your dollhouse that take almost no time at all to complete. Rosemary Drysdale's extensive collection of 40 Lilliputian-size projects contains designs that are easy to execute, require very little yarn, thread, or floss, and are available nowhere else.
Full crochet and knitting instructions are clearly detailed in an easy-to-follow format. Helpful photographs of the completed piece accompany each project to guide you in your work, in addition to instructional diagrams which explain techniques and stitch variations. An added feature -- totally unique to this publication -- is the special section on switchable yarns that tells you which yarns and flosses are interchangeable.
Here are just some of the lovely dollhouse miniatures that you can make: Lacy Tablecloth; Welcome Mat; Ecru Doilies; Shell Bedspread; Oval Dining Room Rug; Lace Curtains; Bolster Pillows; Table Runner; Gingham Kitchen Set; Floor Pillow; Double Drapes; Granny's Kitchen Mat; Granny Square; Afghan Canopy; Bed Set; Scatter Rugs.
Specific colors are listed for each project, but the colors are only suggestions. Use your imagination to create color schemes that will best enhance your dollhouse and its furnishings.
