Helena is a lace cardigan with set in sleeves and deep ribbing accents at hip, sleeve cuffs and the over-sized collar. It's knit in one piece from the bottom up until the armholes, and the button bands are worked as you go to reduce the need for seaming and finishing at the end. The lace stitch pattern is provided in both written and charted format to suit your preference.
The Helena PDF Pattern is designed to fit the 18" American Girl or similar dolls with an 11" chest circumference.
Skill Level: Intermediate - requires a knowledge of basic knitting skills, yarn overs, increasing, decreasing, picking up stitches and setting in sleeves.

I found the pattern difficult at first but kept persevering.. The sweater turned out beautiful.
This is an extremely well written pattern. The lace pattern stitch used may be too challenging for newer knitters, and even more experienced knitters will need to pay attention to the chart since this employes working lace patterning on every row. The results will be worth the attention required to knit this very feminine sweater that has all the same details one expects in a design created for people.
