Instructional booklet - printed with plastic covers and spiral bound.  Shipped via first class mail.


Booklet contains information that was presented at a workshop at IDEX-2009. Information includes choosing the right socks for a particular size doll, ribbing choices, lining - fabrics and how to line the sweaters (and why), and how to lay out the pattern pieces on a sock (some diagrams included). A simple pattern is included in both MSD and SD size. Several pictures are included in this version to show the variety of sweaters, ribbings and trims that can be utilized. This booklet is meant to be a companion to my sock sweater patterns and only includes the pattern mentioned in contents list.
