Snowball Sweater Crochet Pattern

6 reviews   |  

Looking for a cozy winter sweater to add to your doll's wardrobe? Look no further. You will love the new Snowball Sweater pattern by Little Abbee!

This sweater uses special stitches that give the sweater a fun texture. It is crocheted from the top down with the hood and sleeves added after the body is crocheted. Features a ribbed texture around the sleeves, bottom, sides, and the hood. You can choose to crochet either long or short sleeves, the pattern includes instructions for both. The front closure uses five ½” buttons for easy dressing. Yarn from Knit Picks was used to crochet the sweater; Comfy Fingering Yarn in the colors Marlin and Lilac Mist. Both of these yarns can be purchased online from the Knit Picks website.

This PDF crochet pattern is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®.

This is an intermediate level crochet pattern. It includes written instructions with step-by-step pictures. It also includes a summary of instructions (without pictures) to help save ink if you would like to print the pattern.

Recommended Fabrics:  I would suggest using a blend of acrylic/cotton. This pattern will work using any fingering weight yarn though, as long as you check the gauge.

Supplies Needed:
-350 Yards Fingering Weight Yarn -Crochet Hook Size: D/3 - 3.25 MM -Sharp Needle for sewing buttons and weaving in your loose ends
-Five 1/2" buttons

Skill Level:  Intermediate

Worth the effort

As one who comes from an era when there was a dearth of stylish crochet patterns for dolls, I'm delighted with the ones available through Pixie Faire. Making a start with the Snowball Sweater was challenging, but the good news is that once I saw what the designer had in mind, I didn't need to read the instructions so closely. I thought these buttons were perfect with the sweater, but I only had three in my collection, so I modified the pattern from five to three buttonholes.

Lovely pattern

I used this pattern and made a lovely doll sweater. Instead of a hood, I did a large shawl collar. Instructions were clear and easy to follow.

Great, easy to follow

Great! This pattern was easy to follow with helpful pictures. Not quite finished with the sweater, but it's looking fantastic.

Pattern review

You have to be a dedicated crocheted to follow this pattern. I’m in the process of making it. There is a lot of detailed directions and a lot of concentration is important. I can’t watch what’s on tv and follow the pattern at the same time. Back to work!

Cute hoodie sweater. Fairly easy to make, had a harder time finding the right yarn. Wish I had the kid and adult paternity for it.
