I was excited to see that the Mary Frances books had been re-released with garments resized for the 18" American Girl dolls. When I got my copy, I jumped in and made a purse and a shawl for my doll.
They didn't fit.
The patterns are copied from the original book with few changes except a larger crochet hook. As a result, they are mostly too small, and have to be resized to fit from what is written. The shawl, for example, was too small to fit around my doll's shoulders, and the purse was way too large. (I also made some sweater sleeves--had to add both length and width to get them to fit correctly.)
While it's an interesting trip down memory lane, the book does not fulfill its stated purpose--providing accurate knitting and crochet patterns for 18" dolls.

I have an early version of the Mary Frances Knit and Crochet book. When I saw this 100th anniversary edition with patterns sized for an 18 inch doll I was very excited. What sold me on the book was seeing the customer photos of the outfits made. I was a bit disappointed that the book didn't contain a page insert showing the clothing modeled on a current 18 inch doll. For that reason, I didn't give it 5 stars.

This book was purchased for my daughters to learn knitting with their great aunt, the projects build new skills with each one, and small enough to teach the children without their getting bored or frustrated. Highly recommend

It is nice but not quite what I was expecting. It is a larger format book than my previous Mary Francis books.
