This knitting pattern can help you create a detailed aran sweater, like the ones pictured here. This fisherman-style Aran turtleneck is modeled after a beautiful sweater from Eddie Bauer. The cable pattern is complex, worked with small knitting needles. This pattern is for advanced knitters.

The sweater may fit a variety of 13 inch dolls, but is specifically fitted to Dianna Effner’s 13” Little Darling Studio dolls. The sweater is completely open in the back for ease of knitting. The body is knit in one piece and separated at the arm holes. It has set-in sleeves, and the collar is picked up and knitted after the shoulders have been sewn together.

Supplies

  • Ultra Lightweight fingering yarn--I used “Serena” from Manos del Uruguay
  • Knitting Needles sized 00000, 000 and 0 (1, 1.5 & 2 mm) Sweater is worked with size 000 needles.
  • six sets of 4/0 snaps for back closure with matching thread

Gauge
* With size 000 needles in stockinette stitch, 23 stitches & 30-31 rows in a 2 x 2 inch (5.1 cm) square.

The headband pictured with the sweater is made with my “Enchanting Extras” pattern, available separately.
