A Very easy Pull-over
The basic pattern is written for a plain pull-over, which has buttons on one shoulder, so you
can get it over the doll's head. I have also done some variations on the plain pull-over, which are included with the
pattern. The first photo shows the pull-over with a simple 6-stitch cable in the center front.
A Very Easy Cardigan:
The next photo is of a cardigan and shell twin set. The shell is just
the plain pullover without sleeves. This cardigan is done much the same way as the pull-over. The body is knitted in one piece,
to keep the finishing to a minimum. I don't like to pick up stitches, so my patterns are written with very few picked
up stitches. I use a 3-needle bind off for the shoulders and I describe how to do this in the pattern.
These are both pdf files. So far they have been downloaded and knit by many other knitters. A few have e-mailed
me with questions, but there don't seem to be major mistakes in them. If you do find something you think I should
fix, or have problems with them, let me know. I'll try to fix the mistake or help you out. My patterns are written for someone with a little knowledge of
knitting, but I would hope some young girls might want to try knitting these for their dolls, so I have tried to write them
out explicitly. I hope this doesn't cause undue confusion for experienced knitters. When I first learned to knit I knit
doll clothes. They make a good beginner project because they don't take long to finish or require that much yarn.
