Yes, that is right. This pattern is written by me for beginner.

If you know just 2 stitches; knit and purl – you can knit this cardigan.
Even a child can do it.

This will fit American Girl Doll or any other 18” doll.
I have written this Easy Simple step-by-step, row-by-row, stitch – by- stitch pattern that anyone can follow.
This is not a ½ page abbreviated pattern! I can’t understand those myself.
This pattern includes full color (email or CD version) photo illustrations.
In addition this pattern contains several “tricks of the trade” that I have included as an extra tool for the beginner to improve in the future.
This is not just a pattern – it’s a lesson in knitting at your fingertips.

If you think all you can manage is a scarf – wrong !!!
You CAN knit this cardigan.
This will be a beginning of your journey into the real knitting land.
Not to mention an awesome gift for the American Girl Doll mom in your life.

Now as for the sweater:
The sweater is made of a light weight sports / baby weight yarn that provides for a finer knit and more realistic look. It has a flattering puffy sleeve and a pretty bow.
This sweater is made without side seams in top-down pattern. The only seams are under arms in the sleeves and in the back.

The entire sweater when completed weighs about 2 ounces, so you can make this from scraps, if you have them or get yarn from a “sale” bin.
I used a Baby / Sports weight good quality acrylic in this sweater.

2 versions of the pattern (long version - for beginner and shorter, photos free version - to print and take along) are available as an instant download right here on Etsy.
