Gwen - Slip Stitch Turtleneck Sweater w/Cap Sleeves - For American Girl 18 Inch Dolls
Gwen is a turtleneck pullover with a round yoke and cap sleeves. The two color stitch pattern is created easily with slip stitches, giving the look of fair isle, without requiring you to be skilled in that technique. Slip stitch pattern is given in both text and charted format. The turtleneck, hem and sleeves are done in twisted rib. Sweater is knit entirely in the round from the bottom-up, sleeves included, so there’s no sewing required.
Designed to fit the 18” American Girl or similar dolls with an 11” chest circumference.
This is an intermediate level pattern. Skills required are knowledge of knitting in the round, slipping stitches in a two-color pattern, decreasing, casting on stitches at the end of a row, and picking up stitches.
This pattern was made possible in part to my wonderful Ravelry test knitters - EvilMichelle, HazelRose, Catdragon, LittleNeedles, Onnie and Knit1purl2repeat. A huge thank you to all of you for your time, effort and feedback! =)
