Knitting in Miniature, Part II

You may recognize this sweater from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2008. It’s the very popular Green Gable hoodie (below), only this one is knit in size xxxxxxxxxxxS by IrinaOnno, who knits in Moscow, Russia.

I stumbled across this while looking at Green Gable projects. Turns out there’s a whole community on Ravelry of people who knit these intricate garments for dolls. (I guess “small” and “miniature” are two different categories here—miniature knitting is 1/14th scale, while small is more like 1/4th). Check out these Fair Isle sweaters by Oddstitch.
