This knitting pattern can help you create a detailed fair isle sweater or cardigan, like the ones pictured here as well as a few other possible designs. This yoked sweater is worked from the turtleneck or collar (for cardigans) downwards. The fair isle colorwork is completed on the yoke, which means that dressing the doll is less of a challenge than with a sweater where the colorwork goes all the way down the sleeves. The pattern also includes instructions for the matching hats and leg warmers.
The sweater may fit a variety of 13-14 inch dolls (like LeeAnn & Tonner's Betsy McCall), but is specifically fitted to Dianna Effner's 13" Little Darling dolls. The sweater is completely open in the back for ease of knitting (or open in the front, for a cardigan).
* Lightweight fingering yarn--I used "Palette" and "Stroll" from knitpicks.com
* Knitting Needles sized 000 and 0 (1.5 & 2 mm) Sweater is worked with size 0 needles, with size 000 used for the cuffs & turtleneck. For knitting for dolls, I prefer using 16" circular needles, and love the Addi Turbo brand.
* six sets of 4/0 snaps for back or front closure with matching thread
* miniature buttons for realism
* With size 0 needles in stockinette stitch, 20 stitches, 26-27 rows in a 2 x 2 inch (5.1 cm) square.
This purchase is for a KNITTING PATTERN, not the doll or clothing pictured.
