A friend of mine who does dollhouses :shrug: asked me if I could knit her some curtains for the windows. Does anyone know where I can find a pattern to do this? Thanks in advance for any help.

I don't know where to find a pattern but they shouldn't be hard to make up.

These teeny-tiny blankets might make good curtains?

They use 1.25mm :shock: or 0.8mm needles. :thud:Good luck.

Shouldn't be hard at all, find a nice lace stitch pattern, check your guage and measure the window, then take the window measurement and increase it 1-1/2 times... example: Window is 5", make the curtain 7-1/2". Be sure to use tiny needles and tiny yarn so it's authentic and miniaturized. Or make two that are 3-1/2" so it can be drawn to the sides and tied off...

Thanks Ladies! I knew I was overthinking things - had myself convinced I needed a pattern.
