The Dublin Spring Cardigan, by AGGIE and friends, is a versatile, top-down, raglan sleeve sweater cardigan that can be knitted to different lengths. Knit to mid-torso with an elbow-length sleeve for a bed jacket, waist length to dress up dolly’s jeans and t-shirt, thigh length for a dress cover-up, or knee length to wear with leggings. Keep going for a midi- or maxi-duster! Your imagination (and yarn yardage) are your only limitations! DK weight yarn is dolly proportionate to bulky yarn on a person.
Photo tutorials show step-by-step instructions for the sleeve stitches, the decorative bumpy bind-off at sleeves and hem, and my method for seaming the sleeves without extra bulk at the underarm or wrist. Also included is a photo tutorial of my method for closing those pesky holes that often manage to appear at underarms.
This PDF knitting pattern is designed to fit most 18 inch dolls.
Recommended Fabrics: Yarn with a slight stretch and minimal halo, though 100% cotton works as well.

This was a quick, easy knitting project that turned out beautifully. The DK yarn works up quickly. The pattern is well written with great explanatory photos for stitches and techniques. I highly recommend this knitting pattern.
I enjoyed this project. It was an easy enough pattern to follow. I love knitting cables. It is a perfect fit. I made a couple and my grand thinks they are very pretty. Another successful pattern from a great designer. /
