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.

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