The Posie Pinafore is knitted flat on two needles and comes in two different sizes and two different styles. Knit a pinafore with a Fair Isle flower border or knit a plain one, the choice is yours! You can have lots of fun knitting up different colours to match your doll's outfits.
The pinafore features a shaped waist with a split at the back and a press stud closure, for ease of dressing the doll. Buttons at the front add extra detail and the finishing touch.
The finished Posie Pinafore is not recommended as a toy for children under the age of 4 years due to small parts.
Size A has a waist circumference of approx. 21cm and a skirt length of approx. 10.5cm
Size B has a waist circumference of approx. 28cm and a skirt length of approx. 13.5cm. Size B has been designed to fit a standard-sized Waldorf-style doll.
