KNITWARE BASICS Styles (for pets, dolls, bears, and people)
BASICS became famous as the "Critters" program when it offered the Dog Sweater style. With the Dog Sweater, you can design sweaters for many pets; including dogs, cats, hamsters, ferrets etc., as well as 'naturally shaped' stuffed animals which stand with all four feet on the floor
BASICS also allows you to design garments for virtually any doll (Barbie™, American Girl™, Cabbage Patch™, and Troll™, among others) or stuffed animal (the program has "dressed" a myriad of teddy bears, plus a raccoon, an elephant, a dog, and a lion); from the very small (such as, 4-inch Trolls) to the very large (such as, a very chubby 34" chest teddy bear).
Garments for dolls and teddy bears include a basic round-neck (crew) pullover, a basic knit skirt, and knit pants. In 2005, "people" sizes from infant to adult were added to the program for these garments. [NOTE: For a larger variety of styles of sweaters and skirts, you should look at the SWEATERS or the SKIRTS & SHAWLS programs.]
BASICS provides "standard" size data for:
many common pure-breed dogs
numerous standard (commercial) dolls and bears
standard sizes for men, women, children, and babies
In addition, as with all Knitware programs, BASICS allows you to define custom sizing for any pet, doll, bear, or person.
