Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Increase
  • Decrease
  • Knit in the round (sleeves)
  • Pick up stitches

Pattern Description:

The Ready for Spring Top and Tunic is knit seamlessly, from the top down, in fingering weight yarn. The garter stitch yoke, softly gathered top and puffed sleeves are the perfect look for spring.

Instructions are given for 2 lengths, both of which button up the back for easy dressing. The bottom can be finished with a picot or slip stitch border.

This is a great project to use up some of that extra sock yarn from your stash!

The top is shown on American Girl dolls, but will fit other 18" (46 cm) play dolls with about an 11" (28 cm) chest circumference.

Gauge:

32 stitches = 4 inches (10 cm) in stocking stitch

Materials:

  • Darning needle
  • Crochet hook (optional)
  • 2.5mm needles. The top/tunic is knit back and forth, but the sleeves are knit in the round using double pointed needles, 2 circulars or magic loop

You Will Also Need:

  • Small buttons (approx. 8mm) - 4 for shorter top, 5 for longer tunic

Suggested yarn:

185 yards of Fingering weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Knit Picks Chroma Fingering, Lanett Babyull Superwash, Regia 4-Ply
