Designed to fit the American Girl® and other 18” dolls, this feminine cardigan can be sweet or sporty. It is knit from the bottom up and there are NO side seams. The cardigan features a diamond design edged with a twisted cable (that does NOT require a cable needle) on the front, back and sleeves. The sweater closes in front with buttons set into a knitted band.
View A is waist length and has a delicate knitted lace edging on the collar and hem. It can also be made with a hood edged in the knitted lace as a variation.
View B is a longer version with ribbing at the hem. It has a hood for a more sporty look.
The pattern includes written instructions as well as charts. Whether you choose sweet or sporty, “Diamond Jubilee” is sure to become one of your doll’s favorite cardigans.
