Helena is a lace cardigan with set in sleeves and deep ribbing accents at hip, sleeve cuffs and the over-sized collar. It's knit in one piece from the bottom up until the armholes, and the button bands are worked as you go to reduce the need for seaming and finishing at the end. The lace stitch pattern is provided in both written and charted format to suit your preference.

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

The difficulty level of this pattern is: Intermediate - requires knowledge of knitting lace, picking up stitches, increasing, decreasing, and setting in sleeves.

What you will need in order to knit this pattern:

* 1 ball of Knit Picks Stroll - 75% superwash merino wool,25% nylon; Fingering weight (231 yards per 50 gram ball), or suitable substitute yarn.

* Needles in sizes US 2 (3.00mm), US 3 (3.25mm), and US 4 (3.50mm) or sizes required to obtain gauge. Sweater is worked flat, so straight needles can be used if desired, but I prefer working back and forth on a 24" circular needle, as it allows you to try the body of the sweater on as you go.

* 6 buttons, 3/8" in size

* 2 stitch markers

* Scrap yarn for holding sts

* A darning needle for weaving in ends

This sweater is so beautiful, and at first glance, the pattern doesn't look like it will make me want to pull my hair out! Ha! I can't wait to start it!
