Designed to fit popular 18″ dolls, this versatile cardigan comes with two 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 band at the hem. It can be made with or without the collar, which is worked in a seed stitch. The cable makes a wonderful detail all on its own or you can embellish it with embroidery and bead-work for a three dimensional effect.
