"Archipelago", a Gansey inspired textured stitch sweater and hat pattern for dolls by Debonair Designs
Inspired by both my love of the recognizable and traditional Gansey stitch patterns and west coast living, 'Archipelago' is a long sleeved textured stitch sweater, that features a deep ribbed welt and back-buttoned closure for easy dressing, and matching watch cap hat.
A perfect addition to your doll's winter wardrobe, and for exploring the great outdoors, providing extra warmth whether living on an island, along the coast, in the mountains, or for simply snuggling up in by a cozy warm fire
