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.

I have been making things my whole life. My grandmothers both sewed and knit, and one made beautiful quilts as well (an endeavour that I'm not sure I have the patience for but would love to try). I don't really remember them actually teaching me to sew or knit. I think I just learned by watching. My Mom always kept a big bag of scrap fabric and she let me loose on the sewing machine at a very young age. I owe a lot to these three women for their patience and inspiration!
