About the designer

I've been blissfully obsessed with creating things since way back when my legs were too short to reach the floor while sitting at a table.

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Decreasing
  • Casting on sts at the end of a row with backwards loop cast on
  • Slipping sts
  • Picking up stitches

Pattern Description:

Gwen is a turtleneck pullover with a round yoke and cap sleeves. The two color stitch pattern is created easily with slip stitches, giving the look of fair isle, without requiring you to be skilled in that technique. Slip stitch pattern is given in both text and charted format. The turtleneck, hem and sleeves are done in twisted rib.

Sweater is knit entirely in the round from the bottom-up, sleeves included, so there's no sewing required.


- 36 sts & 58 rnds = 4" in Slip Stitch Pattern in the round, unblocked.

- 46 sts & 38 rnds = 4" in Twisted Rib, unstretched, worked in MC in the round.

- 32 sts & 40 rnds = 4" in Stockinette st, worked in MC in the round. It's not absolutely necessary to work a gauge swatch for Stockinette st. I've included it only because some people find it a useful reference point when trying to get gauge.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • One size - to fit 18" dolls with an 11" chest circumference, such as American Girl.


  • 1 ball of Knit Picks Stroll in Ash for MC, 75% superwash merino wool, 25% nylon; Fingering weight (231 yards per 50 gram ball).
  • 1 ball of Knit Picks Palette in White for CC, 100% Peruvian highland wool; Fingering weight (231 yards per 50 gram ball).
  • If substituting yarns or wishing to use up partial skeins leftover from other projects, you may find it useful to know that actual yardage requirements are approx. as follows: MC 120 yards; CC 55 yards.
  • 1 set of size US 2 (3.00mm) DPNs, or size required to obtain gauge.
  • 2 spare short (16" length) circular needles, equal to or smaller in size (so as not to stretch sts) than the DPNs you use to get gauge. These aren't a necessity, but may make things a little easier. They're used to hold the cast on sleeve sts for a round, then the stitches are knit off of them when joined to the rest of the sweater. You could also use 2 stitch holders, spare DPNs or scrap yarn instead.

You Will Also Need:

  • Scrap yarn for holding sts
  • Darning needle for yarn ends
