Meridian ~ a nautical inspired unisex sweater designed for 18" American Girl/Boy Dolls. Add a splash of color with this jaunty short-sleeved unisex sweater to your doll's summer wardrobe. Meridian offers an introduction in working with colorwork known as stranded knitting, with line-by-line written instructions including charts for colorwork reference given throughout in a new easy to read update format
Pattern Note: Worked flat; back and forth in rows
Pattern Features: The 'stranded colorwork', featured has been written out with line-by-line instructions given including charts for color-work reference, along with variations offered for a quick change of color. Set in short sleeves that feature ribbing matching the welt of sweater, a rolled crew neckline created from picked up stitches and back-button closure for ease of dressing.
Construction: Worked from the bottom up in one piece to armhole divide, including back button-bands, then each section is worked individually
Easy - Intermediate: Project using basic stitches, colorwork changes, and simple shaping and finishing
Stranded Knitting Note: Stranded knitting, that is working with two colors, the color not in use is stranded at back of work. I made use of the British right-handed method; picking up and dropping color as required.
Notions: 5 Buttons size 1/2" (12mm), 2 extra Buttons needed for optional decoration on each sleeve cuff, Darning Needle
For a finishing touch, pair with my Newsboy Cap as shown on my former Pleasant Co boy, Jaden or pair with my Eyelet Beret as worn by my American Girl, Saige
