About the Hand Knit Gingerbread Man Pattern

I have made this pattern beginner friendly by designing the entire project to be worked flat – that means that you need not get intimidated by those double pointed needles.  Becasue a gingerbread man has so many parts ( who knew, right?) the pattern may seem a bit longer than my usual ones.  Hang in there, and just follow along.  It will all turn out.  And this is a stash buster project!

Knitting for Barbie and other fashion dolls can be really easy and a lot of fun.  The projects are small, work up really quick, are great stash busters, and you get the added bonus of gift giving that like in my case, will last a lifetime.  Also, you’ll find that Barbie is perhaps a lot more appreciative of receiving knitted goods for gifts than say, your Sister in Law.
