Here is another free knitting pattern for dolls house scale.  This is for a tiny pair of trousers for a child 4 inch tall doll, and is taken from my book 'Easy to Knit Miniature Knitting Patterns  for the Doll's House in 1:12 Scale Book 2'.

The garments are shown on Heidi Ott 4" tall dolls.

Materials required:  Small ball of 2ply yarn, pair of 2mm knitting needles.

Starting at lower leg, cast on 18 sts.

Ss 8 rows.

Dec one st at each end of next row (16 sts).
Starting with a p row ss 7 rows.

Inc 1 st at each end of next 2 rows (20 sts).

Mark each end of next row with a short length of coloured cotton for crotch.

Dec 1 st at each end of next 2 rows (16 sts).

Ss 6 rows. 

Work 2 rows in k1, p1 rib.  Cast off in rib.

To make up:

With right sides together join the two pieces from the waistband to the crotch markers along front and back seam.  Placing crotch markers together, join the inner leg seams.  Remove markers.  Press gently.

Free gift for January!

With all orders made from the webpage in January I am including a FREE gift of the kit to make this lovely heirloom bedspread and cushions for the dolls house.  It is knitted in sections which are seamed together, and is not as difficult as it looks to complete.  The kit contains the pattern and all the yarn needed to make the set; you will need to supply a pair of 2mm knitting needles.
The finished blanket fits a double sized dolls house bed in 12th scale.
This kit is also for sale on ebay at the moment for £3.50, and a finished ready knitted set can be bought from the webpage for £20 if you don't want to make your own.
