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. 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 GAUGE - 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.

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. I LOVE to knit (and sew, and have been meaning to learn a little more crochet...). Aside from my crafty obsessions, I adore books, audio books, feeding the people I love, colors, nature, playing outside, a good nights sleep, learning new things, daydreaming, pondering the ridiculousness of the world, nerdy history and science related books/shows/movies, how I feel after vigorous activity, finding new things to love, catching glimpses of what the world looks like through my daughter's eyes, cute furry animals, this list could go on and on .... I think the online community for crafty people is amazing, and I'm so glad to be a part of it. =)
