This knitting pattern can help you create a beautiful sweater for your doll. This design was miniaturized from a cheerful kid’s sweater made by Gap. I loved the bold color choices, the cute pockets, and the pom pom decoration on the hood.

This design is knit from the hem up, then joined at the top to knit the hood. There are decreases and ribbing to create the waist shaping.

The items may fit a variety of 7-8 inch dolls, but they are specifically fitted to Helen Kish’s 7 1/2” Riley dolls.
