Knitting at Knoon Patterns - 18" Doll Sweaters: Three Pattern Reviews
Three more doll sweaters, adorable miniature versions of three of our classic children's designs, this time including skirts and slacks, all sized for 18" girl dolls (like American Girl® dolls). What girl wouldn't love for her doll to have a matching sweater? Each doll-sized sweater is designed to use the same yarn as our child-sized version.

I could not have had more fun with this pattern. It was an entire education in one project. I learned how to knit on DPNs (something I'd been terrified of), make I-cord, do raised increases, pick up stitches, and many more. Just the little mittens--they are entirely functional, by the way--were a little master class in themselves. I am not an expert knitter, but I was able to work everything out. I won't even mention the yarn shopping I got to do, as of course I wanted to incorporate some luxury fibers. Because the items are small, it is not a huge time commitment to make the set, and the results are magically appealing. Do not be afraid of this pattern!
Wondering what to use with that self striping yarn you just had to get your hands on? Well, this is the pattern right here! A very quick knit you will enthusiastically look forward to the next color change!
