How much fun you can have with this one! The doll cardigan is designed to be embellished with applique, embroidery, beads or buttons! Improvisation is highly recommended.
Designed to fit 18 inch American Girl dolls and other 18 inch dolls with similar body measurements.
The short cardigan is a wonderful cover up for cooler weather and will go over a dress, skirt or with pants. This is a very versatile piece to have and I am sure your little girl will be delighted that you knitted this for her doll.
The cardigan is knitted straight with basic shaping. It does not have a closure but you could use a pin to keep it closed if you wished. One side of the cardigan has no texture leaving it free for you to embellish. You could also use various colors within one cardigan for extra creativity! If you knitted several, each one could look different and unexpected.
