Doll Shoes for an 18" Doll




This is a photo from someone who used my pattern. Thanks Tori!!
Doll Shoes for 18" dolls

This pattern works up best with size 3 needles and Super Saver yarn

Both the left and right shoe can be worked the same.

Abbreviations used in this pattern:
K = Knit
pm = place marker
m1 = Make one (this can be done by knitting into the front and back of a stitch)
ssk = slip slip knit
K2tog = Knit 2 together
YO = Yarn Over

CO 15

Row 1: K7, pm, K1, pm, K7

Row 2: K1, M1, Knit to marker, M1, Slip marker, K1, slip marker, M1, Knit to last stitch, M1, K1

Rows 3 & 4: Same as row 2 ( 27 sts.)

Rows 5-8: Knit

Row 9: K7, ssk 3 times, K1, K2tog 3 times, K7 (21 stitches)

Row 10: K5, BO 11, K5

**Put first 5 stitches on holder**

Rows 11-13: K5 remaining stitches. (not those placed on holder)

Row 14: BO 5 sts

Row 15: CO 6 sts (before you knit the 5 sts on the holder)

Row 16: Knit across 11 sts.

Row 17: K8, K2tog, YO, K1

Row 18: Knit across

Row 19: BO

Fold the shoe in half and sew along the sole of the shoe and the back. Make sure that when you are sewing the second shoe that strap is on the opposite side as your first shoe, or you may end up with two left shoes. Sew a button on to the side of the shoe to secure the strap. Try it on your doll and make a matching purse if desired.

Well done, can't wait to knit these but as it is nearly 11pm think I will start them tomorrow, many thanks for the freebie patterns Pam UK

Kelly said...

I am going to attempt this pattern even though I probably shouldn't try LOL. Could you tell me what BO stands for?

thanks for sharing the pattern!

Onelia said...

BO stands for Bind off.

Good luck with the pattern! Send me a picture when you're done to Porphyriac@aol.com. Make sure you put Doll Shoes in the subject heading.

Elizabeth Rose said...

BO means bind off, or cast off.

i found this shoe to be very tight. My daughter has several dolls and the opening of this shoe didn't fit any of them... i am going to attempt an altering of this pattern. if i am successful i will post it to you so you can add it to your pattern... thanks! love them, as they are super cute!

Onelia said...

hmm...tight shoes... Sorry about that. You could always try a larger pair of knitting needles or a different type of yarn. I hope they eventually worked out for the doll.

Muriel said...

Hi, Thank you for the pattern. I tried making these three times and each time was a disaster. What am I doing wrong, either the strap is too short or the shoe too small. I have tried using smaller larger needles to no avail..I am so frustrated. My question is do you start a new ball of yarn toward the end or what. Any help would be appreciated. I consider myself a knitter but am having difficulty. I would appreciate any help. Thanks again. Muriel NYC

Onelia said...

hey Muriel,
Sorry I took this long to reply. Towards the end, after you bind off, you should cut your piece of yarn and Cast on the 6 new stitches. If you are still having difficulties, email me: porphyriac@aol.com

Onelia said...

another note for Muriel :-D The 6 cast on stitches get joined to the 5 stitches that are on the holder. Like I said in the last comment, Email me if you are still having troubles.

Kara Lee said...

sorry it 4.0MM needles

LC's Mum said...

Great pattern, easy to do and very quick

MarySC said...

Very cute and quick. I also had an issue with interpreting row 14/15; it would really help if you would add "break yarn" at the end of row 14.
I used size 2 needles to make for a 13 inch doll with feet 5.5 cm long. (AG feet are 7 cm)
