Olive is a cardigan that celebrates the beauty of twisted stitches, both in its allover “dots” cable stitch pattern, and in the ribbing of the shawl collar, sleeves and edging. It’s knit in one piece from the bottom-up. The closest thing to a seam you’ll encounter is the 3-needle bind off at the shoulders. The front bands and set-in sleeves are worked by picking up stitches and shaping with short rows. The main stitch pattern is given in both charted and written format, so you can work from whichever you’re most comfortable with. PDF pattern includes schematic with detailed measurements.
Designed to fit the 18” (46cm) American Girl or similar dolls with a chest circumference of approx. 11” (28cm) , such as Gotz, Australian Girl, Maplelea Girl, etc.

I’m only about one-fourth done, but instructions are clear and it’s looking good. I’m not an expert knitter, but my daughter is, so I started confidently with help nearby. So far I’m doing fine! Tiny needles, but it’s a little sweater, so the rows don’t take long.
