Thanks so much - here's the list:

American Girl doll free knitting and crocheting pattern links:

Here’s a sweater to make in college colors (or any color!)

A cardigan or pullover:

Here’s a layette for “Bitty Baby”

A neat sweater adapted from a 1904 pattern:

An adorable jester hat:

Roll brim hat:

This dress is for Magic Attic dolls who are an inch or two slimmer than American Girl dolls – perhaps use a slightly thicker yarn or “knit big”!!

I know this thread is old, but has anyone mentioned Ravelry? I search filtered doll clothes in the pattern search, and already there are a lot of american girl doll clothes.

Some of my best finds have been when someone took an old thread and revived it.
Thanks for the new site.
