I cannot knit other than with a loom so I am even more impressed! Wish I knew how to do that for 1:6 scale dolls. =P

Thank you.
It's all a matter of working out how many stitches you can use and then working out how to make it look realistic within the constraints of those stitches. Sometimes what's left out is important too, as some designs could become over fussy, especially multicolour designs like fairisles.

OMG!! Those tiny tiny jumpers! How on earth do you knit them and what with?

Congrats on the DD - you really deserve it :D
Reply
:iconbuttercupminiatures:
buttercupminiatures Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thank you!

These jumpers are knitted using 1-ply yarn and size 1 mm (UK size 19/US size 00000) knitting needles, it's no different really to full size knitting (once your brain adapts to the size!)

Magical525 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I had to go look at my 1 mm crochet hook for comparison and cringed a bit inside - I'm pretty sure it's the same adaptation my brain had when I moved down to 1/2" sided hexagons for my patchwork and it probably doesn't feel all that small while you are working on them but by golly they are tiny! You did a really great job thee you know :)

:iconbuttercupminiatures:
buttercupminiatures Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
You're right it is the same adaptation as you needed for your patchwork. I find I need really good light to work i though.

:iconmagical525:
Magical525 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I expect you would - those tiny stitches ask a lot of your eyes and bad light would make seeing the stitches almot impossible.
