Karina's Cozy Sweater is one of my favorite patterns! It is an easy knit for beginners and for those with a bit of experience it goes up quite quickly. You will want to make a few to compliment your doll's wardrobe. This dressy sweater pairs well with pants or skirts and on cool days over a pretty dress.
The sweater is knit from the neck down so there are only two simple seams under the sleeves. The pretty open pattern borders the sleeves and the body of the sweater.
There are two styles of of the sweater included in the instructions. The first version is hip-length with four buttons which allow it to hang slightly open at the bottom. A very nice length for tights or pants. The second version is shorter with five buttons so that it closes right to the waist.
The instructions are easy to follow with pictures to illustrate. There are brackets at the beginning of each row which allow you to mark off the rows as you go so you won't lose your spot. For the more experienced knitters there is a written summary of the pattern.
I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I have enjoyed designing it!

I had the great pleasure of testing this pattern for Barb. It was easy and very well written. I plan on making a few more in different colors for my dolls.
Was a well written pattern very easy to follow, both the long and short version and they looked so nice on the doll
