This classic style Shawl Collar Cardigan and Beret for 18 inch soft-bodied doll is a versatile set that combines stockinette and garter stitch to create a timeless ensemble.
Worked from the top down, the pattern uses both straight and circular knitting to minimize bulky seaming. The garter band is created by picking up and knitting stitches, and integrates short rows to form an attractive, rolling shawl collar. The beret is worked from the band to the crown in one piece, and also uses straight and circular knitting.
This set knits up beautifully in a variety of worsted weight yarns. Whether in an acrylic, cotton, wool, or your favorite blend, the result is an elegant outfit for any season!
