This knitting pattern can help you create a detailed aran cardigan, like the ones pictured here. The sweater may fit a variety of 7-8 inch or 11-12 dolls, but is specifically fitted to Helen Kish’s Riley & Bethany dolls. This sweater is knitted from the hood or collar downward. It does use some complicated notations to describe the types of increases, which you can ignore & increase in your own way. :) I knit on a front ribbing, and close with snaps.
