I am very excited to find out that I should be able to use human-sized knitting patterns as written to make clothes for the 60cm BJD (Aalish) that I am working on. The trick is to use fingering weight yarn or lace weight yarn and smaller needles. I found this out at Ravelry, in the ABJD Knitting and Crochet Group. According to those who have done this, only minor adjustments need to be made, usually because a BJD is more slender and has a slightly longer torso than a human does. I already have several knitting pattern books in my studio library, so I am prepared. The idea of making a sweater, or other article of clothing does not seem so daunting at 1/3rd scale.
