Fun to knit the sweater is knit from the top down , the sleeves are knit on straight needles and seamed. The hat is knit flat on 2 needles. and seamed. Sweater buttons down the back.
Suggest when choosing your knitting needles,24" circular works best, only to accommodate the number of sts, (pattern is not knit in the round)
Gauge: 20 sts & 28 rows = 4" on size 4 needle over stockinette stitch
I have been knitting & crocheting about 35yrs, sewing, beading, crafting as well. I fell in love with doll clothes after a friend sent me an 18 inch doll, so I began creating patterns for them and other doll sizes soon followed.
