I made these on the fly. I think they will fit Dora and American Girl Dolls. You might have to drop out an increase. My doll has a wide round hand and I used her to fit the mitten. If the mittens are too big at the cuff slide a bit of elastic tread through to make it fit better.

Knitted Doll Mittens
Size US 2 Set of 5 Double Pointed Needles
Small amount of Sport Weight yarn. ( I used left over bits from my stash)
tapestry needle.

Cast On 20 stitches, Join make sure you do not twist. ( divide stitches 5 on each needle)
Round 1: Knit Even
Round 2: Purl Even
By putting in a purl row it keeps the mitten from rolling and also gives it a small cuff.
Round 3 -10: Knit Even
Round 11: Knit 4, increase in the 5th stitch, Repeat around (24 sts)
Round 12 & 14: Knit Even
Round 13: Knit 5, increase in the 6th stitch, Repeat around (28 sts)
Round 15: Knit 6, Increase in the 7th stitch, Repeat around (32 sts) This is the increase you might want to omit if it is too wide for Dora's hand. If you skip this round omit rounds 20 & 21.
Round: 16 - 19: knit Even
Round 20: Knit 6, K2tog, Repeat around. (28 sts)
Round 21,23,25 & 27: Knit Even
Round 22: Knit 5, K2tog, Repeat around (24 sts)
Round 24: Knit 4, K2tog, Repeat around (20 sts)
Round 26: Knit 3, K2tog, Repeat around (16 sts)
Round 28: Knit 2, K2tog, Repeat around (12 sts)
Round 29: Knit 1, K2tog, Repeat around (8 sts)
Cut yarn and tread trough the last 8 stitches. Pull tight to close. Make sure you tie off the yarn in the inside of the mitten.

I am going to be working out a tank top & shorts combo once I finish the crochet bath robe. I was wanting to do a lacy/frilly tank for the dolls.

I've written a summer dress. The front needs knitted up and tweeked cause I don't like the decreases I did for the first part so that will be the back. I do know that I like the lace pattern at the bottom.
