18 inch doll sweater set »
InstructionsThe type of yarn used makes a huge difference in the size of the sweater. I did need to knit the sleeves 20 inches rather than 1.5 inches to get them long enough.
Type of item: Toy
What was your inspiration?
I asked a neighbor if she had a pattern for a doll sweater and she sent me the link to this pattern. I made a wardrobe for each of our granddaughters for Christmas and wanted to knit sweaters for them too. I did not have enough yarn left to make the hats. They will have to come later.
What are you most proud of?
I love how the variegated sweaters turned out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
A regular size yarn makes a sweater the right size. I tried sock yarn and baby yarn and the sweaters were too small.
