York Harbor Sweater 18" Doll Clothes Knitting Pattern

2 reviews   |  

This nautical inspired sweater, by Clarisse's Closet, has a sweet sailor-style collar and a fitted design, just right for wearing alone as a top, or as a cardigan over a dress or tank. A contrasting stripe along the hemline and collar add to the nautical vibe, and the broken rib waistband and sleeve cuffs add a decorative touch. The sweater is knit flat, with the sleeves and collar knit separately and seamed in place. Choose the cropped length with 4 buttons, or longer length with 5 buttons down the front.

Finished chest circumference: 11 1/2" (29 cm).

York Harbour Sweater

I made this, in the longer version, it was super easy to knit,instructions were spot on. I used a thicker wool as I wanted it to fit the Australian Girl Doll. And as an Australian trying to match foreign wools with ours is always tricky. So I did make up a little big, when I do it again I will use a lighter wool and shorten the sleeves. But great pattern and instructions❤️

Wonderful Design

Beautiful fitting sweater. Instructions were clear and well illustrated. The sweater does require a small amount of seaming but is well worth the effort. You get such a nice structured garment that the seaming provides! Every well dressed doll needs this sweater!
