In the past 60 years, Barbie has become a fashion icon and has mastered various occupations. In one sense a doll, in reality a representation of female achievements.

On March 9th 1959 the first Barbie doll made her debut at the American International Toy Fair in New York. Now approaching a 50th Anniversary, Barbie is an iconic figure especially for young girls. From the initial introduction in ’59 Barbie filled the gap for children who still wanted to play with dolls but wanted something more. Still a doll, but no longer resembling a baby, Barbie became a hot item.

Knit adorable Barbie Doll accessories that are easy and quick to make. Use an array of different types of yarn and colors for variety and to mix-and-match Barbie Doll scarves, shawls, hats, and blankets.
