This sweet and feminine sweater is designed to fit the American Girl® and other 18” dolls. It incorporates several special techniques that include a two-color cast on, scalloped hem, twisted braid detail and an embroidered bullion rose embellishment. There are two flower garland variations to choose from. The sweater opens down the front with three buttonholes for closure. It has two collar variations with a scalloped edge or knitted braid trim and the sleeves incorporate the braid detail at the hem. The body of the sweater is knitted as one piece (no side seams!) and the sleeves are set into the armhole. The PDF pattern contains both written instructions and easy-to-follow charts.
Also available (separately) is access to a step-by-step video tutorial to show you how to master all these fun techniques.
