Item details

Designed to fit the American Girl® and other 18” dolls, this feminine cardigan can be sweet or sporty. It is knit from the bottom up and there are NO side seams. The cardigan features a diamond design edged with a twisted cable (that does NOT require a cable needle) on the front, back and sleeves. The sweater closes in front with buttons set into a knitted band.
View A is waist length and has a delicate knitted lace edging on the collar and hem. It can also be made with a hood edged in the knitted lace as a variation.
View B is a longer version with ribbing at the hem. It has a hood for a more sporty look.
The pattern includes written instructions as well as charts. Whether you choose sweet or sporty, “Diamond Jubilee” is sure to become one of your doll’s favorite cardigans.

You will receive a full color 40 page PDF knitting pattern that includes step-by-step tutorials, blocking templates, row-by-row instructions and charts. There is a 9 page summary at the end so you do not need to print out the entire pattern if that is your preference.
