Pip is a short sleeved cardigan worked in a plush honeycomb brioche stitch with two functional pockets and a single button closure. It's knit in one piece from the bottom up until the armholes, where the sleeves are joined in and worked seamlessly in a round yoke to the top of the sweater.
Pattern includes schematic with measurements.

Designed to fit the 18" American Girl or similar dolls with an 11" chest circumference.

The difficulty level of this pattern is: Intermediate - requires a knowledge of (or willingness to learn) basic knitting skills, increasing, decreasing, k1-b (knit 1 stitch below), kitchener stitch and picking up stitches.

What you will need in order to knit this pattern:

* 2 ball of Drops Baby Merino – 100% Merino extra fine wool superwash; Fingering weight (191 yards per 50 gram ball), or suitable substitute yarn. If substituting yarn, you may find it helpful to know you'll need approx. 210 yards/192 meters of fingering weight.

* Circular knitting needle in size US 2 (3.00mm), or size required to obtain gauge.
Note: All parts of sweater are worked flat, so straight needles can be used if desired, until the point where sleeves are joined to body and the round yoke begins. At that point a circular needle makes working the yoke much more manageable.

* 1 button, approx. 7/16" in size

* 2 stitch markers

* Scrap yarn for holding stitches

* US Size D (3.25mm) crochet hook, for making button loop

* A darning needle for weaving in ends

* Spare needles for holding pocket & sleeve sts until they're joined to sweater, at which point they'll be knit off of the spare needle. DPN's work well for this purpose. Needle size is important only in that the spare needles be equal to or smaller than those used to knit with so sts aren't stretched.
