Designed to fit Diana Effner Little Darling and other 13″ dolls, this versatile PDF knitting pattern comes with three sleeve variations. It is knit all in one piece, from the top down. There are NO side seams; in fact, the only seams needed are on the underarm of the raglan sleeves. It has a special “fast and easy” eyelet cable that does NOT require a cable needle. The sweater closes in front with buttons and has a Garter Stitch or Ribbing band at the hem. The collar is worked in a seed stitch. The cable makes a wonderful detail all on it’s own or you can embellish it with embroidery & bead-work for a three dimensional effect.
