This knitting pattern can help you create a beautiful shawl-collared aran sweater, like the ones pictured here. The sweater may fit a variety of 17 inch dolls, but is specifically fitted to Robert Tonner’s 17” Tyler Wentworth and Ellowyne Wilde. It should also fit Antoinette and Cami. The sweater is knitted from the hem up, with set-in sleeves. The stitches for the shawl collar are picked up and knit after the sweater is complete. The sweater is fully open in back for ease of dressing, and I close my sweaters with snaps.

Instructions are included for different placements for the start of the collar.
