Pattern Description:

"Charter", a textured ribbed stitch hooded jacket pattern for dolls
by Debonair Designs

Charter; inspired by today's fashion trends and the desire to create functional clothing for my 18in Gotz Dolls and the popular American Girl Dolls of today prompted this versatile hooded jacket, that offers a textured, ribbed pattern stitched complete with paneled hood along with a sleeveless option

Designer's Note:
Worked flat ~ my preferred knitting technique using my bamboo straights

Designed to fit: American Girl Dolls & 18" Gotz Dolls like my models,
Elisabeth & Jessica that share the same body type

Construction: Worked from the bottom up in one piece to armholes,
including button bands, then each section is worked individually

Experience Level:
Advance beginner-Intermediate

Pattern Features:
The textured ribbed stitch pattern throughout has been written out with line-by-line instructions given, including buttonhole placement. A paneled hood worked in three sections; back with two side panels, which is then seamed. Set in long sleeves with the option of omitting
the sleeves creating an additional trendy sleeveless version (as pictured in teal on my Gotz model Jessica)

6 sts and 7 rows in 1in over stockinette stitch
