Charlotte is a long sleeved bolero with a delicate eyelet rib mock cable pattern worked over the back, fronts, and sleeve cuffs. It takes very little yarn (approx. 125 yards/115 m - great for using up odd ends), works up quickly, and requires virtually no finishing as it’s entirely seamless. The back is knit first, then the fronts and sleeves are both worked by picking up stitches and shaping with short rows. After binding off the ribbed edging of the body, the only thing left to do is weave in the yarn ends and block. PDF pattern includes schematic with detailed measurements.
Designed to fit 18” (46cm) dolls with a chest circumference of approx. 11” (28cm), such as American Girl, Australian Girl, Gotz, Maplelea Girl and similar dolls.Supplies Needed:

I agree with Dorene A. below. It knits up beautifully and fast. And I used Baby ULL, Dalegarn yarn by Dale, washable wool.
This knits up beautifully! I used stroll fingering yarn from knit picks, and it turned out great!
