Available in two sizes, ‘Janet’ is a beautiful and stylish cardigan just perfect for your doll this winter. Knitted from the top down, this cardigan offers several striking finishes, namely the attractive increases in the raglan, gorgeous cable ribbing on the sleeve cuffs and cardigan hem and an easy garter stitch button band. As a pretty variation, add a garter stitch edging to the cuffs and hems. This relatively easy pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl ®

I didn’t know if I qualified as an intermediate knitter so I went to a knitting group to get started. I needed to see how to do a yo ( yarn over). Once I got the hang of that it went pretty quickly. I watched a YouTube tutorial on cable stitching and went to Hobby Lobby to get a cable needle. Then the cables developed right before my eyes! I kept thinking the whole time, this pattern maker is brilliant! Just SO CLEVER! I watch another tutorial on sewing the sleeve inseams and they turned out great. I plan on making this sweater again using the smaller numbers because this one turned out a tad big. But I will definitely do it again! This pattern is BEAUTIFUL!
Sweater is a gem. Very easy construction and adorable results. If I were to make it again, I might shorten the body a few rows and add a few stitches to the bust, my doll might be a more overstuffed model. It seems to fit her Addy perfectly. Made this with the geometry class jumper for a friend with Shetland wool to celebrate a trip we took to Scotland and Ireland together.
loved every minute knitting this in both styles
This was an easy to knit pattern with outstanding results. The sleeve cap increases are brilliant and so lace like. I also love how the cables work to finish off the sleeves and bottom of the sweater. It is just a beautiful sweater that I plan to knit again and again. Thank you for such a lovely design!
This was a very enjoyable pattern to knit. The directions were very clear, and well written. I love the cables, and the way the shoulder increases are worked give a unique texture.
